The Poyntelle Difference

At Camp Poyntelle, we provide an exceptional, premier overnight Jewish camp experience at an affordable rate, simply because that’s what is most important to us – so much so that’s it at the core of our mission and values. Thankfully our parent agency, Commonpoint Queens, and our long-time partner, the UJA Federation of NY share our commitment to providing outstanding – and affordable – Jewish summer experiences. As a result of our combined efforts, the only thing missing at Camp Poyntelle is the additional expense to families. Our goal is to continue sharing our summer home and transformative experiences with as many families as we can – not only those who can afford to pay more.

Camp Poyntelle & the One Happy Camper Grant

We proudly support funded OHC grants for 1st timers, which are supported by community partners or PJ Library. Save up to $1000 – Apply Today! To learn more about your eligibility, please visit the link below. Campers must be enrolled at Camp Poyntelle prior to applying for the OHC grant.


Financial Assistance

Poyntelle Scholarships are given through our parent agency – Commonpoint Queens. Based on our competitive pricing structure, fiscal assistance will only be available for campers 6th grade and above. To maximize our funds and reach more interested families, we have decided to use “FACTS” Management Company Grants to collect financial and tax information from families seeking assistance. FACTS will perform a financial analysis of the required paperwork and recommend a Scholarship based on the fiscal needs of each specific family. Our goal is to ensure that our funds are being used where most needed, allowing more families to experience the joy, warmth, and spirit of Camp Poyntelle.

When applying for FACTS, instead of looking for Camp Poyntelle as your camp/school please look for Central Queens/Samuel Field Y and choose that option (this is where Commonpoint, our Parent Organization, operates out of).
