Poyntelle gives you a second family. Joey, Camper Age 11At Camp Poyntelle Lewis Village, we put great emphasis on providing innovative, exciting programming across a broad range of activities. We bring in highly-trained specialists including collegiate athletes and professional artists, and our campers return home having explored new possibilities and honing new skills in their favorite sport or activity.
