Hello this is Sparkle! She’s been at Camp Thurman for 9 years: 6 years as camper, 2 years as an Assistant, and 1 year as a counselor. She’ll be a freshman and attending Texas A&M in the fall! Whoop! She will be studying Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M and hopes to use this on mission around the world after She graduates. Sparkle loves Camp Thurman because it is such a place of love that carries the presence of God. The sense of community is an active image of God’s character and it displays imperfect people pursuing a perfect God. Sparkle can not wait to spend the summer with some amazing campers!
