Tonga started working at Camp Thurman last year and loved it so much that he decided to come back for a full summer! Tonga just graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a history degree and a Plan II Liberal Arts honors degree. He will finish up his teaching certificate in the fall by way of student teaching at McNeil High School in Round Rock, Texas. Eventually, he wants to move to the Northwest US and, Lord willing, enter the ministry. Tonga loves Camp Thurman for the fun activities , character-building and, most importantly, the spiritual growth opportunities Thurman provides to children. He has a passion for music, and you will often find him making up silly songs on the ukulele to the delight of his campers! In addition, Tonga leads the staff worship in the mornings before the campers arrive. He is excited to see what God does this summer!
