Camp Poyntelle has been making a difference in the lives of children since 1947. A co-ed traditional sleep away camp nestled in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, we are about 2.5 hours from either New York City or Philadelphia. Our campers, an upbeat and down to earth 250+ strong family of 7-16 year olds, are offered activities throughout our huge five hundred acre facility. Whether it is starting out the day playing on the field & courts, trying their hands at performing and creative arts, adventuring through nature, climbing on our new high ropes course and 500’ zipline, or enjoying the extensive aquatics program on our 70-acre private lake, there is no shortage of activities in which to stay engaged!
Making all this happen are our staff. Apply to be a part of our 2020 athletics team who are looking to make a difference in the lives of children, foster lifelong friendships with other staff from around the world, and add a little flair and meaningful experience to your working experience or resume.
