Soup has been going to Camp Thurman since he was a young camper, and now this will be his fifth summer on staff, and fourth as a counselor! He could not be more excited for the summer and is looking forward to a camp full of campers. Soup will be a senior at Texas Tech University (wreck ’em forever) and is pursuing a degree in Kinesiology, and eventually a doctorate in Physical Therapy. He loves to do anything involved with sports and the outdoors, and spends most of his time doing either, or both, of those things.

He is passionate about queso, is always searching for the best queso around, and will accept any tips about where to find that. Besides queso, Soup is excited to eventually become a Physical Therapist and hopes to work in the sports rehab field. He loves Camp Thurman for the incredible encounters with the Lord it has provided for him, as well as the opportunity for some outdoor fun! Soup cannot wait for this to be the best summer yet and is looking forward to seeing every camper that comes through the gates!
