"Every summer that I come to camp, I find that I learn something new. The biggest thing I learned about myself this summer was that I am capable of doing a lake swim to Poyntelle and then back to Lewis Village." - Lindsay, 15
"Getting the opportunity to live with your closest friends is incredible! "- Ian
"My first summer here I was scared to swim in the lake because I wasn't a great swimmer but sure enough with the support of a few close friends the greatest staff here I learned to do it. "- Zach
"Friday night Shabbat dinner is my favorite camp tradition. The food is delicious and it’s special because everyone gets to sit with whoever they want, for instance, with friends in other bunks. "- Rachel, 8
Cooking and Arts and Crafts
At arts and crafts we make really cool projects, things like fashion designing, beading, making bracelets and jewelery, menorahs and mezzuzahs.- Maddy
Camp Poyntelle Lewis Village has been enriching the lives of campers as a premier Jewish residential summer camp for over 60 years. With strong traditions, a beautiful facility and dedicated staff, we offer campers the opportunity to grow, learn and have a great time every summer. We offer a wide variety of athletic, waterfront, nature/ropes and arts programs for campers in 2nd-11th grades.
One of our most unique features is in our overall structure. Camp Poyntelle Lewis Village is split into two campuses on either side of our beautiful, 70-acre private lake: Poyntelle for 2nd-7th grade campers and Lewis Village for 8th-11th grade campers, where activities and programs are more challenging and appropriate for teenagers. Our lake is at the heart of camp, offering activities from waterskiing, wake boarding and tubing to our color war rope burn and our weekly Shabbat celebration on the waters' edge.
Camp Poyntelle Lewis Village truly is a unique and special place for generations of campers and families. We look forward to welcoming you into our community!

We had an amazing last night of camp. The festivities started with banquet. We had a delicious dinner with appetizers, a choice of fish, chicken or ribs and mashed potatoes. After dinner we all went down to the waterfront for burn out. It’s a tradition as the sun sets that counselors give speeches saying goodbye […]
