Suns of Sphairee

Beginning in 1983, Ponacka Alumni and camper parents have been raising money to send less privileged boys to Ponacka. The boys are selected from the Big Brothers organization in Peterborough and most attend for several years.

In 2019, we celebrated our 37th year of the SOS program. At the end of the 2019 campaign, our generous alumni raised enough to send five boys to camp! Ponacka offers a 25% discount.

Gordon Dunlop, 15 year Ponackian is the coordinator of the Suns of Sphairee. He sends a yearly letter to current and prospective Ponacka donors and keeps track of all donations.

In March 2019,  Laura organized a very successful Ball Hockey tournament in Toronto for “young” alumni. Let us know if you would like to join a team for the 2020 tournament . The 2019 tournament raised almost $5,000 for the SOS program.

Anyone interested in contributing to this bursary fund is encouraged to donate online at Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Peterborough. Select Camp Ponacka Suns of Sphairee Program from the Fund drop down menu. An emailed tax receipt will be sent to you shortly after making your donation.

Please consider contributing to make a huge difference in the life of a Little Brother.
