When we stepped off the bus at Camp our first year, we didn’t know what to expect. When we stepped off the bus our second year, it felt like we were home. Camp Poyntelle has become our summer home where we feel safe, comfortable and welcomed. We’ve learned so many lessons here about competition and sportsmanship to Jewish values. Some how we’re having so much fun while doing this is all happening. There is always so much to do at Camp, sports like baseball, soccer, flag football and tennis. There’s drama, arts and crafts and best water park! Friday nights celebrating Shabbat as a whole Camp is one of the highlights of the week. Each day we get to pick electives too. This way you can focus on one area that you really like. Camp Poyntelle gives you the courage to try new things and be yourself. We both were actually in the play for the first time ever! We will never forget the memories made at Camp Poyntelle. The friends, the counselors.. the best summers ever!
