Where is Camp Point Clear?
Camp Point Clear is located on Guntersville Lake in Guntersville, Alabama. It is approximately 37 miles southeast of Huntsville.
What about transportation?
* Chartered Bus: Campers coming from the Greater New Orleans area are able to come to and from camp on a chartered bus that leaves from and returns to uptown New Orleans. (additional fee required)
* Drive: Parents are welcome to drive to camp as well.
By Plane: Campers using Huntsville International Airport can be picked up by camp staff for an additional fee. Transportation to airport for return flights is available. Trunks will need to be shipped to and from camp. Please check flight options with Beth before booking (email@example.com). Please email all camper’s itineraries and flight confirmation numbers to the camp office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hold all flight information, travel money, and identification documents in the office until the departure date.
We will assume responsibility of your daughter when a CPC staff member meets her at the airport.
If your daughter is traveling as an “Unaccompanied Minor” be sure to pay all associated fees when you book the flight. Attach the Unaccompanied Minor form to the return portion of the tickets. Use Elizabeth Charlton as the name of the person meeting your minor camper.
Can my child request to be in a cabin with a friend?
Campers may request two cabin-mates. We will make every attempt to honor these requests as long as the campers are in the same age group.
What is a typical day like?
A camper's typical day is divided between water activities (which include canoeing, sailing, swimming and skiing) and land activities (tennis, arts & crafts, and gym). After lunch and mail call campers have "Rest Hour" in their cabins, with each night dedicated to a special activity involving the whole camp.
Session One campers enjoy an overnight camping trip, complete with tents, hiking, and s'mores.
5th and 6th Graders enjoy an overnight camping trip combined with a challenge low ropes course.
7th and 8th Graders enjoy and overnight camping trip combined with rappelling at Stone Door.
9th, 10th and 11th Graders enjoy climbing and rappelling at Stone Door and a "Beaver's Night Out", having dinner at a local restaurant.
Campers age 12 and older can enjoy a day of white water rafting.
Session 2 & full session campers will visit a nearby water park and amusement park.
What is the ratio of counselor to campers?
We have a 5:1 camper to counselor ratio.
How can I find out about daily activities at camp while my child is there?
We know our parents enjoy knowing what their children are doing at camp each day. To keep parents informed of the day-to-day activities we send an email and pictures to parents each evening, informing them of our activities and special events of the day.
What if my daughter becomes ill while at camp?
The camp RN lives on the camp grounds. The parents will be notified if it is necessary for a camper to visit a local pediatrician. The local hospital is 5 miles from camp.
How can I contact my daughter while she is at camp?
Campers enjoy receiving letters and packages at daily “Mail Call”.
These letters and packages can be mailed to:
Camp Point Clear
315 Trico Dr.
Guntersville, AL 35976
Parents may also send their daughter emails (email@example.com) which are printed and handed out at daily mail call if received by 10 a.m. Emails arriving after 10 a.m. will be delivered at the next day's Mail Call. Camper's account will be charged $1.25 for each email.
The camp discourages packages that contain any type of food. The critters at camp are smart enough to find their way into the cabins!
How do I contact the camp during the camp session?
Parents may call the following numbers to reach the camp directors when CPC is in or out of session:
Can you please suggest a hotel for parents?

CAMP POINT CLEAR
"Some of my fondest childhood memories are of summers spent at Camp Point Clear, and, to this day, one of my best friends is someone I met there. Three of my daughters have gone to CPC for several years now and love it as much as I did."
- Nicole St. Paul,
Parent of Current Camper and Counselors
