Tanner Bries

Tanner is from Dubuque, Iowa and is a graduate of Hempstead High School. He used to go camping all the time as a kid, but this will be his first formal summer camp experience. Tanner says, “I’m really hyped to try it out.” He comes from a very large family, and Tanner is actually an identical twin! In his extended family, there are roughly 12-14 sets of twins.

One of Tanner’s favorite things to do is exercise and practice martial arts. For the past year, he’s been practicing muay tai kickboxing, which he really enjoys. He’s also a huge music person and likes all kinds of different music and genres. Finally, Tanner says, “I love being in nature, especially with my friends.” We think he’s going to love that part of camp this summer!

For Tanner, summer camp is going to be an all new experience. He says, “I’m really excited to meet everyone and to be trying something new!”

Tanner’s favorite Bible verse is Joshua 1:9: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
