Denise Mathews began volunteering at Camp David during her second semester at Missouri S&T. She started as a mentor in the afterschool “front porch” program and became a counselor as often as she could. Denise was challenged in her faith at camp and developed a love for the families of prisoners, and children in the foster care system. The Camp David staff and kids quickly became a home-away-from-home while Denise was in college.

After graduating, Denise moved to Columbus, Ohio, where she now works as a Geological Engineer, hiking and assessing landslides. Denise is excited to be able to serve on the Board of Directors and continue supporting Camp David!
