There is a lot going on at Camp Pinnacle! Between weddings and school programs, Camp has been busy, but it’s not the same without our campers and counselors. We miss you all!
We are hard at work getting ready for next summer and we wanted to update you with some of the many things we are doing to make the Camp facility even better for 2014! First we wanted to share some of Nick, Tom and Alaska’s accomplishments from the summer that campers who were in Sessions I or II might have missed:
There is a new element in the Bike Park.
Tom, Nick and Alaska have built new canoe racks.
There is a new walkway beside the girl’s cabins.
We’ve built another new deck by the lake and added a new walkway from the upper deck to the beach volleyball court.
We are continuing to improve the Mountain Slide.
We are doing a complete remodel of the lower girl’s bathhouse. It will soon be even nicer than the upper girl’s bathhouse. Black Balsam and Bear Pen (boy’s cabins) will get new porches as will Tallulah and Watauga (girl’s cabins). The Zoo (featured in the movie, Heavyweights) will be converted to a new cabin for our youngest boys; it will have two new porches and a balcony with a fireman’s pole! This cabin will even have its own bathrooms.
Down by the lake we will be taking out the many small docks in the canoeing / rowing area and putting in two larger docks, one for rowing and one for canoeing.
Expect new bike trails and some new trail features. The Pump Track will be cooler than ever!
Outside of our traditional camp facilities we are upgrading the Oakmont and Fish Hawke camping areas to improve our on campus camping for short overnight trips.
Keep your eyes peeled, we have a couple more surprises in store for you but we aren’t ready to reveal them yet. In the meantime, check out our new Camp Pinnacle Program for middle school aged campers: Pinnacle Explorers.
Remember if you book by Oct 15, you can save $100 on 2014 tuition. It’s going to be a great summer, we are already excited to see everyone back at Camp Pinnacle!
