General Counselor (Former Employee) – Copake, NY – June 8, 2017
A normal day at Camp Pontiac is jam packed with activities. It's a wonderful camp for the kids, you can honestly see the love that the camp goers and JCs have for the camp itself. Counselors who are brought in for the summer tend to have a godawful stressful time. I loved working with the kids. I disliked working for my supervisors who showed little to no respect for those that worked for them. This is a very personal review as I only had interactions with three supervisors who were not understanding folk. The owners of the camp are fantastic and the camp itself is well run.

One of the best decisions I've ever made was to work at Camp Pontiac. I have built relationships that I will cherish for the rest of my life. I hope to never sever ties with this place. Always a Friend.

The owners of the camp are profit driven, and create an illusion for the tours to attract new customers. There are very returning campers to become counselors due to the poor upper management. As a staff member, my fellow counselors and I were lied to and our happiness was never a concern. I found those who returned summer after summer were there for the memories they made with the people they've met. Very few enjoy their time working. Aside from that, pay is average for summer camp and the food is bad.
