Building better boys since 1947, Ponacka offers an individualized program with over 20 activities. Family owned for 75+ years, we give boys an “I count, I belong” experience and a place they call their “home away from home”.

A first time August 13 year old camper 2023 said it best. ” You are building better boys. You are doing what no school could ever do, and building happier boys. When I think of this camp, a stunning concoction of beautiful nature, fun activities, and wonderful counsellors, I’m in utter disbelief. While we do spend the day doing all sorts of things- from dips, to flag-raising, to grace or archery- we are also embracing a culture, a culture of kindness, friendliness, bonding and fun. When I look back on the past month, I see happiness, joy and challenge.  Yes, trip was challenging but it enhanced my admiration for my fellow campers, counsellors and beautiful nature. I’ve also experienced true happiness here at camp, from the beautiful camp you have created and the care you give to campers. So, it breaks my heart to leave this beautiful camp. Thank you for so much joy and fun. Thank you for all your care. Thank you for making me a more mature and better person.
