32 years after her first season as a Counselor in Training, an alum returns to the grounds of the summer camp now celebrating its 80th anniversary. THE POINT is a paddle through the pond of memory. A film that invites you to explore the bonds, initiation, connection, continuity, and self-discovery that occur in the special community that is summer camp. It’s a testimony to the passing of the flame from adolescents to their future adult selves. THE POINT is the cradle of our character.
