Eliza refers to camp as her second home. As a 5th year camper, she has built relationships with staff, counselors, and cabin friends that last from year to year. She can’t wait to pack her trunk and is happy to trade her phone for her backpack. We love that she builds confidence, self-esteem, and social skills with every summer session. – Beth Bledsoe,  2021 parent from Davidson, NCM

Two-week sessions

This is our classic Camp Pinnacle session, and families are always amazed at what our campers accomplish in just 13 days. This is hardly a starter camp. In two weeks, every one of our campers rafts a whitewater river, camps out overnight, summits a mountain, and mountain bikes on forest trails. They’ll participate in more than 40 different camp activities, make great friendships, learn from impressive role models, and grow in ways they never could at home or school. (Read about our philosophy on the Great 8 Outcomes and 5 R’s here.)

Three-week session

Our two-week session is already impressive, but if you want to maximize the fun, friendships, relationships with caring role models, and overall incredible impact of camp, our three-week session is the way to go. Three weeks gives campers the opportunity to really settle and thrive in the camp community, build stronger life, activity, and outdoor skills, enjoy longer and more exciting off-camp adventure trips, and solidify relationships that last long beyond the summer. The difference of just one extra week can be exponential for learning and growth. In fact, the biggest complaint about our three-week session is that it’s still simply too short!

Leadership program

We are excited to announce that Camp Pinnacle is offering our first Leadership Camper program for the 2022 summer. This program will be for current 9th- and 10th-graders and will run concurrently with our traditional camp providing 2- and 3-week options. Leadership Campers are able to enjoy the traditional fun of camp, have the ability to create their own activity schedules, and work as a team to design and “lead” their own backpacking trip. We feel the most important aspect of this new program will be the Nightly Leadership Lessons focused on building the life and leadership skills that prepare them for young adulthood (including college and career challenges). They will include topics such as having a growth mindset, managing your relationship with your phone, dealing with failure, and more. Leadership Campers will also have opportunities to work with younger campers and contribute to the camp experience by helping with various camp-wide tasks, like serving meals and setting up special events. Each task has been thoughtfully planned to ensure campers are gaining skills and perspective to what responsibility and leadership look like at Camp Pinnacle and beyond. Since Leadership Campers will be helping with specific aspects of camp, tuition will be 10% off the regular cost.

All-inclusive camp tuition

Your tuition includes everything except transportation to and from camp. There are no hidden fees* or gear or activity rental fees. We do not have a canteen that sells snacks; rather, fruit and other snacks are given out every day before and after lunch. We want you and your camper to feel like you’re a part of our family, rather than a customer—we’ll treat your kids as we treat our own.

*If paying by credit card, there is a 2.75 percent processing fee. However, there are no fees for paying by debit card, check, e-check, or wire transfer. This is the only extra fee you’ll find at Camp Pinnacle!

Cancellation policy

Payments are 100 percent refundable prior to November 30, 2021. From December 1 to March 1, payments are refundable, minus a $500 cancellation fee. For cancellations after March 1, payments are non-refundable. If a participant withdraws voluntarily or is sent home as a consequence of unacceptable behavior, no refund of any type will be granted. It is the parents’ responsibility to cover any additional travel expenses.
