Hi my name is Alyssa Lazarus. Last summer was my first summer at Camp Poyntelle. It was the most amazing experience I ever had. I was so nervous when I was on the bus going to camp but once I arrived I was greeted with a warm welcome. Everyone was so nice. I loved going to the lake and playing on all the water trampolines.

I also loved Shabbat at camp. It was like no other experience I ever had. We would go down to the lake and each week a different group would sing songs. Campers also got different kinds of bracelets for doing sweet things around camp.

It was the best experience I ever had and I made so many great friends.
