News & Noteworthy
Welcome to Ponacka’s website!
We are starting to count down the days until June 28th, arrival day for our July boys! Our work camp crew begins opening up soon and Ponacka will come alive again, for its 67th season. It has been a real pleasure to visit almost all of our first year campers in their homes and to see many Ponacka families at recent events. We hope that you are following the Camp Ponacka Facebook page where you can read a “Morning Talk” every Monday.
If you are a prospective family, we hope that you will request our literature and DVD through this site. We encourage families to visit camp the year prior to enrollment and have a tour. You are welcome anytime, just call us a day or two ahead to let us know your plans.
We look forward to another great summer!
With best wishes,
Anne and Don
