Three years ago I decided I was going to do something different with my summer and work at an American Summer Camp. Thanks to Camp Poyntelle that decision became one of the best I’ve made in my life. Only being at camp can give you a true understanding of what it is and why people return year after year. However, when putting into words why Camp Poyntelle is so amazing there is always the same things that come up.

I think I can speak for almost everyone who has been to camp when I say firstly that the relationships and friendships you’ll make in the summer are some of the best you’ll make in your life. This is because you’re in an environment that challenges you in every possible way. Camp forces you to grow as an individual and work as a team with others through every experience whether it be fighting to win Apache Relay during colour war or simply helping to unpack campers.

I love Camp Poyntelle one of the most fun places on earth, a place I can say helped me grow as a person and a place that will always be my home away from home.
