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.
Donate to SOS

In 2022, we celebrated our 40th year of the SOS program. This summer our generous alumni raised more than enough to send three brand new boys to camp. Ponacka is fortunate to be able to offer a 25% discount.

15-year Ponackian Alec Orvis 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 2022,  we were delighted to see the return of the Ponacka Ball Hockey tournament in Toronto for “young” alumni. Chris and Graham Bocking organized the event this past spring with a robust post-pandemic turn out. Let us know if you would like to join a team for the 2023 tournament .

Anyone interested in contributing to this bursary fund is encouraged to donate through this link to our SOS fund with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Peterborough. An emailed tax receipt will be sent to you shortly after making your donation.

A cheque can also be mailed to Alec Orvis, 185 Hunter St. East, Unit 103, Peterborough, K9H 0H1  and should be made payable to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Peterborough, with a memo to allocate to the SOS Fund. 

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