Camp Leaders

Camp Yaldi at Pigeon Mountain Crossing is a family owned and operated camp.

Pigeon Mountain Crossing was founded by the Tinney family in 2012, after purchasing a stunning 80-acre parcel of land. Since then, this once empty piece of property has been built into a thriving summer camp, designed to give youth a fun and safe place to learn new skills, make friends and create unforgettable memories. Our family is dedicated to an awesome summer at Camp Yaldi!

Owners and camp operators, Chuck and Melissa Tinney, are constantly astounded by how God works out the details for His glory. They live on site and are dedicated counselors at summer camp. They are so excited to join the campers as they experience the great outdoors and gain wonderful memories at Camp Yaldi.

Alex Tinney, Scotchman of all trades, is our Camp Director and Operations Manager. He is a former elementary educator. Alex keeps everything running smoothly at Camp Yaldi. He and his wife, Lauren, have one beautiful baby girl, Teddy. Lauren is a talented local Florist. She is also a former elementary educator and camp director; she has an amazing gift for making things beautiful and fun. You will catch Lauren around camp, especially helping with our "Celebrate Evenings."
