Beloved Lake Potanipo

The view of Lake Potanipo greets us each morning at Camp Tevya, and its sunsets send us to bed with a smile on our faces. We can see the lake from our arts & crafts studio, from our fields, from many of our bunks. On its sandy beach we play volleyball and relax with friends; in its waters we swim, boat, canoe, paddle, waterski, and grow skilled and confident. Lake Potanipo brings us together, and being together on its shores draws campers and alumni alike back to camp.

Many people at Tevya like to say they “live 10 for 2,” thinking about camp all year until they can return for the two months of July and August. Please enjoy a blog post on living “Ten Months for Two” by Camp Director Mindee Meltzer, who counts herself one of these people.
