Whiskers has worked at camp for three summers so far. This summer will be her fourth, and her first one as a counselor! She just finished her senior year at Mansfield High School, and this fall, Whiskers will be attending the University of A&M at Galveston as a freshman, and wants to study Marine Biology. Whiskers loves Camp Thurman because coming to camp here as a child helped her to grow in her relationship with Christ, and she wants to help her campers discover His love and glory the same way she did. Whiskers feels that right now her Heavenly Father is working in her life to prepare her for college and living on her own, and maintaining a rich and steady foundation in her faith as she leaves home. Whiskers is so excited to work with your kids this summer and share Christ’s love through a fun experience!
