Can’t believe we are winding down to our last days at Camp Pontiac. Where did the summer go? Even though we began to pack and clean up, that did not stop us from enjoying some time boating, hanging by the pool, playing assassin, dodgeball, tennis, and a little slip n slide.
Tonight, was our annual Prom. The campers had a great time dancing and eating ice cream sundaes. What a great way to end an amazing summer!
Today the Debs, Braves, Freshman, Sophomore, Inters, and Junior boys and girls enjoyed a day full of indoor activities practicing “sing rehearsal”, arts and crafts, cooking with Karen, dance, and bingo.
Congratulations to our 6th grade boys who took first place in a basketball tournament at Camp Taconic.
For this evening’s activity, the girls and boys watched a movie and Sophomore boys had a pool party.

Today was another exciting day at Camp Pontiac! It started with our 5th grade boy’s basketball team taking part in a tournament at Camp Kindering.

As the campers returned, they were escorted on Sheila’s golf cart around camp showing their 1st place trophy. Our 6th grade boys’ soccer team came in 2nd place at Camp Winadu. Finally, our 8-10 grade girls football team took part in a tournament at Camp Crane Lake. They also came away with a 1st place trophy. Congratulations to all the campers who participated!
During tonight’s evening activity, campers enjoyed the “Unique Show.” All campers dressed in blue, green, or red to compete in different games. Our Senior girls and boys gathered together at Tree-Top. They had fun around the campfire enjoying s’mores and quesadillas on the grill.
Today was yet another perfect day at camp as we had a beautiful, bright sunny day. Our campers had a busy schedule full of outdoor activities, including waterfront and pools to cool down from the heat.
Our lower camp girls went on a fun adventure today with a trip to Zoom Flume, our second favorite water-park after, of course, our very own Poontoon here at Rhoda Lake.
In the evening the Super Boys and Girls visited Treetop Village where they were dancing and enjoying delicious quesadillas and s’mores by the campfire. Tonight there were Boys Leagues, Juniors enjoyed Hershey Game, Subbies and CIT’s were singing Hits, and the lower camp was at the Paramount watching a movie. Seniors left camp for some pizza and watched a movie. It all ended with bedtime milk and cookies for our youngest campers.
