Dwan Fellows comes to camp from Savannah, GA where she and her husband, Chris, have served in various forms of church ministry since the planting of the Savannah Church in 2002. They are business owners of a successful clinical research business since 2004. Chris and Dwan have two adult children who grew up attending Camp Swamp summer camps and numerous retreats, including some Swamp Corps trips, and both have served as counselors and teen workers. “Some of our family’s fondest and most favorite memories come from being at Camp Swamp, and we want camp to be that for many other campers, parents, volunteers, and staff.”

Dwan loves to cook and practice hospitality and has planned or catered many events over the years, including wedding receptions, parties, and local church activities. Since 2016, Dwan has volunteered and assisted in the Camp Swamp kitchen and found that she loves using her talents to feed the many campers and staff who attend or visit the camp. Working in the kitchen combines two loves for her: using her coordinator/business skills to manage a busy environment and feeding people.

“Feeding people is one way I show my love for others, and the opportunity to do this at Camp Swamp combines this love and my love for camp in a way that is very rewarding.”
