For over 60 years, Camp Poyntelle Lewis Village has captured the hearts of hundreds of thousands of girls and boys. Are you one of them? We hope so. Are you looking for an old camp friend or counselor that you may have lost touch with over the years, but have been thinking about forever? Well, this is the place to help you find them. CPLV is truly a second home and we know how important it is to campers and staff, new and old.
As CPLV alumni, you hold the traditions and memories that make it the wonderful camp we all love. With this in mind, we created an alumni community to give you the chance to reconnect, have a laugh or two, and maybe even come back to camp! As with any successful organization, strength and integrity are built on the foundation of its supporters. This is why Camp Poyntelle Lewis Village is tracking down alumni that have helped make us a premier Jewish camp for the last 60 summers and informing them of the success and ongoing efforts of the camp they once called their “summer home.” Wouldn’t it be nice to see camp friends you may have lost touch with?
Please take a minute to give us your contact information so we can send you a new Alumni newsletter and keep you informed of Camp Poyntelle Lewis Village events.
Welcome back to your second home. We cannot wait to hear from you.
“I went to Poyntelle and Lewis from 1972-1978. Those summers have always been the highlights of my teen years. But who would think that the friendships made during those short weeks every summer would become lifetime friendships? There are five of us (now four) that have made the effort to stay part of each other’s lives through all of the usual milestones (marriages, babies, jobs) and one tragedy (we lost one of us, Jon Weiss, to cancer in 2007). And, when Jon passed away, it was a calling for my buddies and I to raise money to renovate the Rec Hall in his memory.
My girls also consider CPLV a significant part of their lives. It’s one of those wonderful parental slices of joy to see Rachel look forward to summers the same way that I did and more importantly to forge the same types of friendships that I did all those years ago. CPLV is very much a part of my family’s identity.”
