Camp Allen in Grimes County has announced it’s newest president.
That follows the announcement by 22 year president George Dehan of his retirement at the end of this year.
The Board of Trustees announced Allen Knight will be the next president, after serving the last 6 years as Property Director for Camp Allen’s Senior Management.
He has been responsible for managing the camp’s vast facilities and property along with overseeing the major construction of the new $6.4 million Bishop Doyle Center, among other projects.
A native Houstonian and graduate of the University of Houston, Knight owned a residential construction firm in the Memorial area for over 20 years prior to joining Camp Allen in 2016.
A ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, Camp Allen is one of the largest Christian conference centers in the country; serving over 70,000 guests annually including 10,000 children.
