We can’t thank our maintenance team enough. Through their hard work and dedication they are transforming Camp Pinnacle. If you haven’t been here since last summer, we think you will be truly amazed! Since last summer, we have built a new biking flow trail and the new Lakeside Amphitheater. The Amphitheater will now be the all camp meeting spot for Morning Assembly and Special Events.

We have created an exciting first cabin experience for our youngest Camp Pinnacle boys!

We have completely transformed our Boys ‘cabin area. We are excited to introduce two newly renovated cabins for our youngest boys. Knowing that 8 year old boys are the most nervous of any age group to come to camp, we created a cabin complex that will be even better than home!  We believe it’s the coolest summer camp cabin in the nation! With egress by slide or fireman’s pole as well as two new decks, the boys even have a special rooftop perch.

No fair, is what we hear from the girls! And next year the girl’s complex will get an incredible tree house – But for this year… we have built two new decks with lake views and completely renovated the lower girl’s bathhouse. This way there should never be a line for showers!

We all love gaga ball, but what do you do when you get out? Adjacent to the gaga pit, we are building a natural play area. Filled with logs and stumps, this is a great place for creative play. Campers can work on balance and agility and take small reasonable risks. More exciting than a swing set, we are excited to give campers opportunities to create their own outdoor games and challenge themselves.

You have already heard about the exciting new flow track! The biking at Camp Pinnacle is already awesome, but in a few weeks we will be adding a new kid’s biking area along with biking trails to our already cool trail network . We have completely redesigned the pump track and at the end of last summer we built “Copperhead Road” a new feature for our bike park! Whether you are new to biking or an expert, the riding at Camp Pinnacle will be unmatched! We are adding our third new fleet of Jamis mountain bikes to make sure every camper gets a quality new bike to ride!

We also have a new fleet of Old Town canoes coming and launching them will be easy from our new canoeing dock. (construction starting in April) We have a new stand up paddleboarding area – which will be the perfect place to try our new fleet of NRS paddleboards! Keeping our waterfront busy, there will be a new emphasis on rowing with new rowboats and a new rowing area!

And that’s not all – we have a couple more exciting surprises in store for our 2014 campers– but we don’t want to spoil the surprise just yet!

Huge thanks to Nick and Tom, Alaska, Will, Joe and Richard, our amazing maintenance team. They have been working in near zero degree temperatures and through snow, ice and rain to get ready for your amazing summer. Kudos also go out to Rodney and Mark for building the amphitheater and flow trail and to Trail Dynamics and Ed Sutton for our biking trails. By working together, we are accomplishing great things!

We think you will be amazed on Opening Day at all you will see. But don’t wait, come to our Open House on Saturday, May 3 or enter the GNAR (the coolest kids Adventure race ever) on Sunday, May 4. Better yet give us a ring at 855-378-1928 and schedule a time to stop by and say hello.

We are so excited to show you all that’s new at Camp Pinnacle! Only 95 days until our first campers arrive! We can’t wait to see you!
