Ponacka has been a transformative experience for Cam. He has learned to be a more thoughtful and considerate person and has developed leadership skills. We are very grateful for this!
Building better boys since 1947, Ponacka is operated by the Morawetz Bocking family. All counsellors are home-grown. In the woods, by the lake, boys can just be boys. They learn skills, make new friends, have tons of fun and a break from home, school and technology.
Over decades, Ponacka has given thousands of boys opportunities to develop confidence, resiliency and independence. Parents tell us at the end of every summer, how much their sons have "grown up".
Ponacka is a long term investment at significant cost to parents who recognize the experience is transformative. The boys become staff who excel at team work, initiative and communication. Preparation for life and the world at large starts at summer camp!
Founded in 1947, Ponacka has been family run for more than 70 years, providing a wonderful continuity to the programming and the culture of the camp. It was founded very much in the vein of what Taylor Statten was doing at Couchiching and the Algonquin camps that continue to bear his name today. Namely, these programs based in woods-lore and campcraft—all the most traditional camp activities—in order to promote confidence, social interaction, and a set of core values. Then, as now, that's why families turned to Ponacka. The all-boys atmosphere is attractive as well, giving boys a unique space to develop and grow into a sense of themselves and their talents.
