Camp Owners & Directors

Welcome to the Ponacka site! In 1985, we joined Anne’s parents, Bruno and Gwen Morawetz, directing the camp. We are thrilled to now have Laura and Nick working with us.

To prospective families, we look forward to answering your questions. To current and newly registered families, we look forward to seeing many of you at our gatherings in Toronto, Ottawa, Kitchener, Oakville and Mexico City. This summer, our 70th, promises to be exciting and fun filled as we return to the shores of Baptiste Lake.

Welcome to the Ponacka Family! My husband Nick and I feel so fortunate to be spending the 70th summer of Ponacka on the sunny-shores of Lake Baptiste. Ponacka will have been part of the Morawetz and Bocking family for 70 years this summer, but beyond those two families it has created a close knit community of thousands of Ponackians world wide! As we reach the mid-point of our global honeymoon tour we feel fortunate to have visited Ponacka alumni and prospective Ponackians from Peru to New Zealand! We have discovered that no matter where you are in the world you are never far from a Ponackian and a friend.

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.
