Our one 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 6 boys who live in a cabin overlooking Lake Baptiste. The counsellors taking care of the youngest boys often started out in the very same cabin when they were first campers. 

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

  • Swimming lessons,
  • Canoe instruction
  • Sailing
  • Water skiing
  • Horseback riding
  • Arts and crafts
  • Pottery
  • Woodworking
  • Lapidary
  • Nature
  • Archery
  • Bushcraft and more.

Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

  • Interpersonal skills: Group living, with friends and counsellors, provides boys the change to discover how to be a good friend, how to communicate their needs, how to listen and help others in a safe social environment. Ponacka is an antidote to online hours and offers a reprieve from technology.
  • Courage: Being away from home for any amount of time at a young age takes courage. Boys gain courage and confidence when they are given the opportunity to try new things without parental support or supervision. They discover that the world at large is full of kind and supportive people.
