Camp Pinnacle is the outdoor fantasy camp that we all wanted to go to as kids! Cabins on the lake, songs, constant activity, bonding with your cabin mates. I wish I had the chance to spend summers here as a kid! Addy adored all the counselors. As a parent, your professionalism makes the entire camp experience acceptable in my eyes. Well done! – Nate Stewart, Mt. Juliet, TN

Andrew’s time at camp was a great way to unplug and recharge. He loves all the different activities he can choose from. His favorite was the two-night trip in Pisgah National Forest. He was able to reconnect with friends from last year and make some great new friends, and he said it was awesome, busy, and fun. He’s ready to return! – Shannon & Jason Crenshaw, Woodbine, GA

I was very impressed with the camp organization and structure, and my kids LOVED it and can’t wait to return next year! I would enthusiastically recommend camp to others. Both my girls were so excited and got to do things that were out of their comfort zones. I was thrilled with the feedback that they didn’t want to leave. – Josh Baron, Smyrna, GA

Camp was a fun and exciting way to allow my son to experience some activities that we cannot provide him with at home. He is an only child, and all school year we strive for high academics and after-school sports and activities, and this was a good “break” for him to just do some fun outdoor things with other young people who are having fun, too. Plus, I know he built some self-discipline skills and now he feels good about himself having lived away from mom and dad for nearly two weeks. From the first phone call and email to drop off and while he was away, everyone at Camp Pinnacle made us feel good about what we were doing. – Charelle Burgess, Homestead, FL

It’s more than just a sleepaway camp. It’s the philosophy behind it and the passion that the camp puts into it. Camp was amazing! – Carola Pimentel, Coral Gables, FL

Camp was fantastic! Awesome! The complete package! The counselors were amazing, well-mannered, super role models, and attentive to Lee. They helped him learn values and self-confidence. – Leticia di Lena, Miami Beach, FL

Camp was life-changing for Sarah. Because we live in Florida, a lot of the activities at camp are unique and challenging. She simply said she had an amazing time and met some really cool people with whom she’s been in contact since returning home. Plus, Sarah’s a vegetarian—she said the food was good! – Katherine Gaston, Naples, FL

Camp was an amazing and nurturing experience. Nicolas had an amazing time. – Gabriela Imery, Key Biscayne, FL

It was a phenomenal experience for Ansley. She embodies the 5 R’s: respect, responsibility, reaching out, reasonable risk, and resilience. – Tonya Blackford, Hendersonville, NC

Caleb is aging out of camp, and he definitely doesn’t want to age out! He’s loved his counselors every year, but last year was even more so. He loved everything. – Deborah Corbishley, Coral Gables, FL

Camp was amazing! It helped Bailee’s self-confidence and made her feel more comfortable in her own shoes being away from us. We thought that the facilities were very nice, especially how all the girls’ cabins were arranged (close-knit and not too spread out). – James & Ashley Loging, Prosperity, SC

Camp is a very nurturing place, with the right set of values and managed by a very professional team of people who care. It’s in a great location with amazing outdoor activities. It was Alejandro’s first time away from camp, and he enjoyed it even while managing homesickness. He wants to return next year. – Ana Urdaneta, Miami Beach, FL

This was Caroline’s fourth summer to go to Camp Pinnacle. She said, “This was the best year ever!” The great thing is that she says this every year when she comes home and has truly meant it every time. Sending her to Camp Pinnacle has been one of the best decisions we have made for our daughter. – Margaret Curtis, Parkland, FL

Camp Pinnacle gave Kobe the chance to rediscover and reconnect with the outdoors. He met new friends and learned how to value each other’s’ talents and interests. Camp Pinnacle’s 5 R’s reinforced core values that every family hopes to see in their children, and it gave our family a framework to strive for outside of camp as well. Camp has managed to preserve the goodness of camp-life from years ago, while adding 21st century elements that our children need in today’s world. Kobe said it was the best, most amazing experience he’s ever had. – Stacy Lopez, Miami, FL

Camp Pinnacle is the right place for our outdoorsy, active girl. We are grateful the staff could nurture this and keep her busy. She found her camp home and can’t wait to return with her little brother next year. Evie loved it when she arrived, and appreciates it even more now. Thank you. – Laura Freeman, CHarlotte, NC

Camp Pinnacle provided Ethan with a great deal of perspective and appreciation for the world around him. Having the opportunity to travel out-of-state and experience the outdoors through uniquely structured programs and activities—with caring and fun-loving counselors guiding the way—was an experience of a lifetime for him. Ethan’s experience was outstanding. He has mentioned “the nicest people you would ever want to meet” when asked about his fellow campers. He described the counselors as “amazing” and said they were like family to him by the end of the session. He told me how he got emotional when he earned his CP hat. The counselors wrote a song, and he was really touched by that. – Kyra Forrest, Hudson, OH

Sadie loved her time there and misses it. She’s already signed up for next year, and plans to return the following years. She’s very enthusiastic. Camp Pinnacle was just right for her. – George Evans, Spartanburg, SC

Isaiah had a wonderful and fun time. He cried the day after leaving Camp Pinnacle because he missed his new friends. What an unforgettable experience for him: fun yet educational, with many new activities. It is an amazing place. I would recommend this camp to everyone. – Patricia Horn, Hendersonville, NC

Absolutely the best choice we have made for Zell! Well, he really made the choice three years ago, and at the end of each session, he asks us to sign him up for the next year. He and his cabin mates are currently planning next year’s Adventure Treks experience together, and we are excited for him to go. – Anne Hoole, Chapel Hill, NC

Emma came home with a confident calmness about her. She loved every single thing she did. She said it was phenomenal, amazing, better than she expected, and super fun. – Katie & Steve Scruggs, Huntersville, NC

Michael had another great camp session. Thank you. It was an incredible opportunity for him to spend time outdoors and be disconnected from electronics without missing them. – Beni Overbeck, Jupiter, FL

Stella loved everything about it—the food, the counselors, the activities, and the friends she made! She had such a fantastic experience that she didn’t want to come home! – Leigh & Chuck Heimes, Savannah, GA

Our boys can’t wait to go every year, and they want to go for longer because there is so much to do. They love the counselors and have met so many neat kids; plus, the activities are top-notch! – Teri Thomas, Apex, NC

I love that the facilities are really wonderful but still rustic; that the activities are diverse and rich but still focused on what should be at camp (not overdone); and that the food sounds fantastic and my son is always disappointed to return to our meals at home. There are so many camps to choose from, and I’m sure they all have fun activities. What differentiated Camp Pinnacle from the others is the strong foundation in community that we immediately sensed upon meeting [executive director] Dock and from the first moment of arrival at camp. I feel that our son was understood as the unique individual he is and his needs were more than met. I feel that Pinnacle is really paying attention to what our kids so desperately need today: the experience of failure in a safe place, resilience, and being kind and respectful to others. Pinnacle is our partner in not only giving our child the experience of a lifetime, but also the critical lessons we need help in making sure he gets. – Jane Kelley, Nashville, TN

Camp Pinnacle went above and beyond our expectations. When I picked Ella up, she had the biggest smile on her face and said it was amazing. She has not stopped talking about the people and her adventures since. She learned so many new things, but above all she had such a great time. She made so many new friends and absolutely loved her counselors. She did not have one negative thing to say! It was truly the best experience for her. – Sandi Szmania, Sarasota, FL

Having a child that had been adopted and being an older parent, this camp has allowed our son to be a boy and do all kinds of “boys” activities that we cannot do. It was a awesome experience for Aidan, and he loved it! – Debbie & James Simmons,  Sims, NC

Kiersten loved the SUPS. The bunk beds were “totally awesome.” The food was “better than mom’s.” It was the best gift to give a child who craves independence but isn’t quite ready for it. “It was soooo fun!” Camp is clean, well-maintained, and completely awesome-looking. – Kasondra Black, Monticello, IL

Sam returned from camp talking about new friends and experiences; he has an increased level of confidence and independence. He said, “It was really fun and the counselors were really cool.” – Jodie Bell, Nashville, TN

We truly appreciate your passion, dedication and above all strong and solid values. Julie did not stop talking, talking, talking when I picked her up! It is exactly the outcome we were looking for! Julie immediately said she wanted to stay 5 weeks for next year and that Patrick (her cousin) would love it! – Marie-Agnes Daumas, New York, NY

Absolutely outstanding! Camp Pinnacle is truly a place where each child can be themselves without a popularity contest. It’s a confidence booster! Loved it, just like last year. Ellie enjoyed friends from the previous year who returned and made wonderful new friends this year. It’s a place of fun, comfort and acceptance away from home. All good! Camp is a very comfortable, welcoming place. – Carey Ellen Heberton Charlotte, NC

Camp is an excellent opportunity to connect with nature and with others. Jorge gets to interact with great role models, go out of his comfort zone, and take reasonable risks within a supportive and safe environment. – Raquel Garrido, Santo Domingo, DR
