At Ponacka boys build lifelong friendships, earn awards, have fun and discover the best version of themselves.

Our two week sessions provide younger boys with an opportunity to try camp, often their first chance to live away from home. There are two counsellors and a Counsellor in Training assigned to each group of 8 boys who live together in a cabin overlooking Lake Baptiste. Often, the counsellors taking care of the youngest boys started out in the very same cabin when they were first campers.

Two week campers have the opportunity to try out many of our activities including: 

  • Red Cross swimming lessons
  • ORCKA canoe instruction, 
  • Sailing
  • Horseback riding
  • Arts and crafts
  • Pottery
  • Woodworking
  • Lapidary
  • Nature
  • Archery
  • Bushcraft 

 In August only, 10 year olds may enrol in a two week session. In July, two week campers must be younger than age 10 as of July 1st, 2020. For more information, visit our website or give us a call at 705-748-9470.

Character Development:

  • Resilience: Living away from home for two weeks is a great accomplishment. Ponacka boys gain the self-esteem required to handle adversity and advocate for themselves. Initiative and optimism are caught, not taught at Ponacka. Our boys have the opportunity to take age appropriate risks, try, fail and succeed.
  • Interpersonal skills: Living in a group of new and old friends, provides boys the time needed to learn how to be a good friend, to effectively communicate, to listen and share joys and hardships in a safe social environment. Ponacka is an antidote to online hours and offers a reprieve from technology.
