As we prepare for our 71st season, we are already looking forward to returning to the shores of Baptiste Lake and the sounds of boys’ noise and laughter!



Camp Directors

Ponacka’s 71st summer may have been unseasonably cold and wet but that did not put a damper on all of the fun had! Nick and I continue to feel so fortunate to spend our summers with the campers and staff of Ponacka. They really are an incredibly outgoing, hilarious and ambitious group of people.
As the third generation of directors, we continue to learn about what goes on behind the scenes at Ponacka while still having lots of fun. Since returning home to Toronto we have really enjoyed running into Ponacka families in nearby neighbourhoods. We hope to see many more Ponackians at the upcoming alumni events this fall and throughout 2018.

The boys just got back from their first year at Camp Ponacka. Both our sons went for 4 weeks. They loved everything and will be attending again next year. Counselors, activities, and facilities were all excellent. It’s one of the few places where boys can get back to being boys. There is a sense of calm and peace about them now – as if they get life just a bit more than they did before camp. Can’t say enough… best thing we ever did for our boys was send them to Camp Ponacka.
