What Makes Poyntelle Special

Camp Poyntelle has been making children’s summer dreams come true since 1947. As a premier Jewish summer camp, we offer a traditional sleepaway experience filled with amazing memories, lasting friendships and nurturing and compassionate staff. We feel that camp is one of the few places a child can be their own person, without judgment or social pressure. Our intentional community is designed to allow kids to be kids, in a low key, fun and inclusive environment.

The Poyntelle Difference!

There are many words & phrases that come to mind….Intentionally Low Key, Nurturing, Kind, Exciting, Values Driven Jewish Life, Independence, Confidence and more! When you combine awesome sports, creative arts, challenging technology and our 70 acre, one-of-a-kind private lake and waterfront experience – you get something truly special and unique….you get Camp Poyntelle!

Memories and everlasting friendships are what binds us, but we go beyond that by challenging our campers and staff to reach new heights, explore their world by trying new things and becoming a better human being in the process. The Poyntelle Difference is all about learning to be independent, developing life skills while away from home and positively impacting the world around you. Camp is where our Jewish Values meet young minds and anything is possible!

We look forward to welcoming you into our camp community!
