Tom McCartney

Tom is a master craftsman and carpenter and oversees the Camp Pinnacle facilities; he has led our massive camp-wide renovation since 2012. From treehouses to cabin decks to the incomparable nature center, much of the magic of Camp Pinnacle’s facilities is a result of Tom’s understanding of how our kids’ and young adults’ experiences can be affected through the camp’s beautiful grounds.

Tom is a native of Western North Carolina and has an associate’s degree in forestry. He’s worked with the United States Forest Service and as the head of the Environmental and Conservation Organization in Henderson County. His two children, Finn and Amelia, have graduated from Camp Pinnacle and now attend Adventure Treks each summer.

Tom will be teaching many of our life skill to Leadership Adventure Semester students, from carpentry and woodworking to electric and plumbing.
