Pinnacle Mountain is a wonderful local hot spot for nature lovers of all ages, but July 12-15 will be extra fun for the kids with their annual Nature Explorers' Day Camp.  This “nature detective” camp is designed for kids ages 7-10 to connect with the natural world at Pinnacle Mountain State Park between the hours of 9 a.m.-3 p.m..  There will be four whole days of hikes, visiting with live animals, nature programs, and more!  Park interpreters have adjusted the 2011 camps to bring your kids the best experience possible.

"We have limited each camp to 10 or less campers to be able to have a more personal experience.   Some of the camps already have several campers registered, so be sure to call today," says park public relations.
