One of Pompanuck's missions is to provide diverse educational and recreational experiences to the community. Each Summer and Winter, Pompanuck offers its wonderful hospitality and solid educational vision to the young men from New York City's St. John's Residence for Boys.

Their annual camping experience on Pompanuck's well-equipped and beautiful grounds is one of the highlights of their year. It is a fine educational experience and a fun filled getaway.

Many of these young men have never been out of an urban environment. Their time at Pompanuck has given them an opportunity to see a wider swath of life; to be out of doors, experience nature and be together in situations that challenge but also give them new insights and skills. This opportunity can become a chance to change; a chance to see that the world has much to offer and that they can be a part of it. Pompanuck offers these young men, and those who work with them, teachable moments unlike any that they have in their normal routine.

Pompanuck would like to expand its programming to include more events and retreats for local schools, youth groups and social service organizations. With philanthropic support from the community, Pompanuck will expand and attain this vision. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Pompanuck. We welcome you to visit and discuss your vision with us.
