"Caroline enjoyed her time SO MUCH! She cried and cried and listened to the songs she loved at camp when we got back. I want to make her a scrapbook. I can order pics from the site right?
She talked for hours about CPC. I want to thank you for taking such good care of her. She won't ever forget the friends she made and the new experiences she was able to participate in. You run such a class act camp.
"Thank you all so much! Kennedy had a ball!! She is serious about three weeks next year!" July 2019
"Thanks again for everything! Mary S had a wonderful time at camp. She is already talking about next year." July 2019
"Thank you both again for a fun & memorable first CPC experience for Darby. She had an absolutely amazing 3 weeks at her first time to CPC! She was non stop talking about all of her experiences before she passed out on the sofa at 6pm. We moved her up to her bed & suspect she will sleep until late tomorrow morning!!
Thanks so much for a wonderful summer!!!"
"We love the daily updates and the photos. The combo makes it much easier for me to be away from my small child (8 or 9 year old).
Counselor Reedy was also a great comfort to Margo. This family-like atmosphere is another thing that makes me feel at ease sending my child away for a few weeks. Thank you for all you do to make CPC such an inviting, exciting place for our kids to spend time! Margo looks forward to spending more summers at CPC!"

I" just want to thank you all for another wonderful year. Lyden had a great experience once again and is ready for 3 weeks next year.
The memories she has created will be with her forever and that is due to all of the hard work of the Petagna family.
As I was looking at the pictures I was brought back to my own time at CPC. Awesome!
Mama Tag is looking down and proud!
Thank you for everything! "
CAMP POINT CLEAR a summer camp for girls
Dear CPC Campers and Parents,
It is with three heavy hearts that after 48 continuous years we have to let you know our decision is to take a gap year for our 2020 camp season. Our commitment was to do the right thing for each and every one of our campers and counselors. Because of COVID-19 the decision is to not take any chances with your daughter’s health and safety.
We apologize for holding up your possible other summer plans, but we were hoping for a much clearer health outlook that has been very slow to materialize.
We have spent countless hours studying guidelines from the CDC and the Alabama Health Department trying to make this work for the girls. We know this is not the news your daughters wanted to hear.
We plan to pick ourselves up and face the positive by planning an amazing 2021 50th year summer celebration! Just like at camp, when something doesn’t work because of rain or other circumstances, we come together and go to plan B. We would like for campers and parents to contribute ideas for our 50th summer. A 50th celebration is a huge deal so everyone should be involved in the planning!
We know Mama Tag and Papa Tag would also be sad about this "gross situation" (as Mama Tag would say) but happy that we put the health and safety of Camp Point Clear first and foremost.
We love each and every one of you and look forward to seeing you around the campfire with the Whitecaps and Seagulls on the first night of camp, June 6th, 2021.
Parents have an option to receive a full refund or put payments towards 2021 camp tuition. Let us know your preference by responding to this email.
Thank you for your patience and devoted support as we navigated through this difficult decision. As always, call (504-909-0963) if you have any questions or concerns.
Beth, Penny and Patty
Camp Point Clear will soon celebrate its 50th year as a cherished home away from home.
