Alumni Blog & Events
Stay in touch to hear about upcoming alumni news and events.
Welcome to the alumni section of our Ponacka website, the original site at ponackaalumni.com has been taken down.
Anne’s father, Okimau, started the alumni website in 1999 just prior to his death. We are pleased to continue the tradition of keeping in touch with alumni and hosting an alumni weekend every second year, in June, prior to the start of camp.
Members of the alumni association are contacted directly with news of special events and topics of interest. If you are not already a member, you can join by clicking on Become a Member.
Since 1983, Ponacka alumni have financially supported less privileged boys to attend camp each summer. The boys are selected by Big Brothers and Big Sisters Peterborough and they return to camp each summer. If you would like to support this cause, please click here for more information on the Suns of Sphairee!
The next alumni weekend will take place in June 2018. We welcome all Ponackians to return to camp for the weekend. Families are also welcome and many alumni enjoy showing their wives/husbands and children what Ponacka is all about.

We are happy to announce that we have captured the footage of Okimau’s movies, more recent movies and the slide shows of Walter Davison on a USB key that is now for sale. The price of $60 includes taxes and mailing. Over 23 hours of oral and visual camp history is available on this custom USB key! The early movies in the 1940’s include footage of a few boys chopping down a huge tree, not an adult in sight, boys in canoes with Okimau’s voice reminiscing about the fact that lifejackets were not yet a part of camp life. He often lists the names of the boys as he narrates the movies – they are a captivating view of Ponacka in the early days.
To order, send an e-transfer to email@example.com, or send us a cheque made out to:
1735 Fifth Line
