Who are we?
God has strategically placed Camp Pinnacle’s 880-acre facility at the top of the scenic Helderberg Mountains, overlooking the Capital District of New York State to impact many people for Christ. The purpose of Pinnacle Ministries is to share Christ's message, make disciples, and enhance the ministry of the local church by partnering with them and other ministries. We accomplish this through summer camps, year-round retreats, and conferences promoting growth in Christ and practical service. We are always growing in our knowledge of Christ through the study and practice of God's truth as found in the Bible.

The aim and purpose of Camp Pinnacle has always been the same; to lift up Jesus Christ, to develop Christian character in young people and to give them a happy and wholesome vacation.
Our vision is to establish Camp
Pinnacle as a beautiful, friendly place for individuals and groups to experience the grace of God in the Capital region for refreshing hearts and encouraging real and meaningful relationship with Jesus. Christ.
"He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths...”
Camp Pinnacle was founded in 1898 after Harriet Christie asked the young girls in her Sunday School class if they would like a place to get away during the summer. So was born the first summer camp in America founded exclusively for girls. By 1909, the camp was serving 800 summer campers!
