We are thrilled to announce that Cara Nisbet has joined our leadership team full-time! You might already know her from her time on Hillside as one of our great cabin counselors or recognize her friendly voice from phone calls with the office. At the end of the summer, Cara stepped up into a full-time position as our office administrator.
Though she’s originally from Brighton, MI, Cara has spent time living and working in Winter Park, CO, as well as in Helena, MT. Now she’s ready to embrace the next chapter and call western North Carolina home! Cara has always loved the outdoors; she grew up traveling the country, going on scenic hikes, and exploring national parks with her family. Those experiences, along with her passion for working with kids, inspired Cara to study recreation and event management at Central Michigan University. During her college summers, Cara chose to unite her passions and be a counselor here at Pinnacle, mainly working with our youngest campers in Hiawassee and Tuckasegee. During her cabin days, she discovered the importance of building a strong community, and she loved watching her campers grow.
As the office administrator, Cara will take on a unique role. From enrolling campers to creating camp daily schedules to managing travel logistics for safe, summer arrivals and departures, Cara’s hard work will be invaluable in ensuring everything behind the scenes runs smoothly and effectively. And Cara will always be a friendly voice on the phone, ready to answer any and all questions you may have about camp.
Cara already has four amazing summers under her belt, and we could not be more excited that she is joining us full-time. We cannot wait for our new campers, staff, and families to meet her!
