Alan Hackman - Facilities and Ground Director

Nicole Hackman-Joy Ranch Manager&Guest Services Coordinator 

Their children- Jacob, Kelsey & Kyle


Alan is a Knox County native who started volunteering at camp in 2013.  

Alan's passion for camp and children led him to accept a position as the Director of Facilities and Grounds.  Alan moved his wife and three children to the camp to keep everything in great shape year round.  

Alan's ability to connect with children has been evident during his time with us.  Add to this his handy-man skills, hard work-ethic, and ability to BBQ some killer ribs, we have been more than glad to have him.
