Hubbard has been in the church since he was a young child and started attending high adventure camps, like Doe River Gorge, when he was 15. He worked at Camp Tuk-A-Way in Blacksburg, Va., for three years before coming to Doe River Gorge.

β€œI had fallen in love with that ministry,” Hubbard said. β€œIt is just a part of me now. It is not that I fit in, it is who I am. Doors have closed and opened.”

Hubbard met his wife Janna at Camp Tuk-A-Way. Six years ago, she received an internship through Milligan College that placed her at Doe River Gorge, and the couple moved to Carter County.
