Working at Camp Pinnacle is one of the most rewarding, challenging, and enjoyable ways to spend your summer. You will make a difference in the lives of children while building life skills in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina.
Camp Pinnacle is a coed, residential summer camp located in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Hendersonville. Our goal is to create a fun and safe outdoor experience for children ages 7–15 from about 35 states and 16 countries. We offer two- and three-week sessions with the option for campers to combine sessions for a longer, richer experience. Maximum session size at Camp Pinnacle is 200 campers (approximately 100 boys and 100 girls). There are 8–10 campers of similar age and grade with two counselors per cabin, and we maintain an overall 1:3 staff-to-camper ratio.

All applicants undergo an intensive interview process, including three director interviews. Our goal is not only to find out if you are the best fit for camp, but also to ensure that Camp Pinnacle is the best fit for you. We will also collect three references and complete a background check.
All of our counselors must be at least 18 years old and have completed one year of college. We are looking for applicants who are passionate about working with children, have a love and appreciation for the outdoors, and are able to thrive in an inclusive community with little time off and limited personal time.
