Travel To Camp

As soon as your child is enrolled in camp, we encourage you to begin planning transportation to and from camp. Please see below for more information on traveling to camp.

Camp Pinnacle’s address is 1 Wolfe Lake Drive, Hendersonville, NC 28739.

On opening day for 2021, we will have staggered, hour-long arrival windows for families beginning at 8:30 a.m., 9:30 a.m., and 10:30 a.m. You will be able to choose your time slot in CampInTouch later this spring. On closing day, camp will open at 9 a.m.

Approximate drive times:

  • Atlanta, GA: 3 hours
  • Charleston, SC: 4 hours
  • Raleigh, NC: 4 hours
  • Nashville, TN: 5 hours

Flying to camp

For summer 2021, we will not be picking campers up at the airport; campers must arrive to Camp Pinnacle with a parent or guardian. However, we are happy to take campers to the Asheville (AVL) or Greenville, SC (GSP) airports on closing day to fly home. Please see “tips and tricks for booking your child’s flight” in CampInTouch for more booking windows and other important information before purchasing a ticket.

If your camper is flying home as a UM, please do not pay the UM fee for the return flight ahead of time—we have found that airlines misplace receipts, and families often have to pay twice. To help ease the logistics for you, Camp Pinnacle will pay the UM and any baggage fees upon checking your child in at the airport. We will then charge your credit card or e-check for the reimbursement. Before checking your child in for their return flight, we will also need the name of the person who will be greeting your child at their final destination. Please call us at 855-378-1928 with any questions.

Shipping trunks

If your family is flying to NC prior to camp, it may be in your best interest to ship their trunk to camp separately; it will then be placed in your camper’s cabin prior to opening day. We recommend using UPS or FedEx to ensure it arrives on time. We are happy to ship your camper’s trunk back to you at the end of the session; please contact us if so.

Important things to note:

  • If you choose to use UPS, here is an easy-to-use form.
  • Please have your camper’s trunk arrive the Friday before camp starts. We will let you know when the trunk arrives.
  • Please pack your camper’s carry-on with a bathing suit, change of clothes, and basic toiletries like a toothbrush in case the trunk arrives late.
