Waterfront

Camp Pinnacle’s private 20-acre Wolfe Lake provides endless opportunities for fun! Besides cooling off on a hot summer day, campers will improve swimming skills and learn how to properly navigate and use a variety of watercraft.

Since 1928, swimming in Wolfe Lake has been a central part of the Camp Pinnacle experience. For some kids, whose only swimming experience may be in a pool, swimming in a lake when you can’t see the bottom can be a little unnerving. We embrace this as an opportunity to swim in nature and step out of one’s comfort zone. Swimming classification begins the first day of each camp session, and lessons are a mandatory part of our program until a camper reaches the Green Level.

Our lake is fed by five mountain streams and several underwater springs, so the water refreshes itself every few days. We professionally manage our lake ecosystem and monitor water quality, and we control temperature through aeration so the temperature stays in the mid- to upper seventies all summer long.
