Camp Pinnacle Staff

Both boys still talk about their counselors! While Elijah’s gave him confidence and independence, Nate’s provided a “second dad” and comfort experience. We couldn’t have asked for better remarks when we picked them up. They absolutely raved about the activities and couldn’t name one negative thing about camp. If you want your child to gain independence, resilience, confidence, and have fun 100 percent of the time while gaining these attributes, then send them to Camp Pinnacle. The life lessons they learn every day at camp are invaluable, and they will become better kids and future adults with this experience. – Dina Galloway, parent from Odessa, FL

Our counselor team is the heart and soul of Camp Pinnacle. They are more than just counselors—they are role models, mentors, and friends to our campers. Every new counselor has undergone our extensive interview process, including three interviews, three reference checks, and a complete background check. Every counselor attends a two-week orientation that begins with an emphasis on building a close, inclusive, and caring community. Before orientation, every staff member receives certifications in CPR and wilderness first aid or wilderness first responder.
