Brian Martin grew up on the edge of an alligator swamp in Georgia amidst a long line of dairy farmers who are passionate about relationships and good food. His family home was a sanctuary where children were taught respect, the value of hard work, and the adventure of working in God’s kingdom. In his late teens, Brian traveled to Canada to serve as a counselor to native American kids riddled with addiction problems and cultural barriers. During his time in Canada, he was engaged to Angela. After they were married, they again served in Canada for several years. Brian sensed a continued call from God to reach out to young people who are struggling. In 1994, they moved to Pennsylvania to help Bald Eagle Boys Camp become established. Over the next seventeen years, Brian served as supervisor, program director, and eventually director before moving to Maryland to start Allegany Boys Camp. He and Angela, along with their nine children, are outdoor enthusiasts. They’ve enjoyed hiking the Dolly Sods Wilderness in West Virginia, canoeing the Suwannee River in Florida for eight days, and hiking to Krotys Rock in Ireland. Along with his invaluable years of experience, Brian brings a tremendous amount of energy and enthusiasm to camp. Whether it’s working with government agencies or walking down trail to talk to a boy, Brian is there with his whole heart.
