Three Priorities. One Center.
Arts & Education – Building Community – Preserving & Creating Legacy
What Is the Ponderosa Center?
The Center’s vision includes:
- A uniting space that fosters knowledge, wisdom, and culture enhancing experiences contributing to the health and success of our community
- Maximizing the benefits of arts, education, networking and cultural opportunities to the people and guests of our community through robust, multi-faceted programming and events
- Enrichment through continuing education, theater and music productions, conferences, lecture series and other opportunities
- Preserving legacy by honoring the unique cultural history of the McCall area
- Establishing the first four-season venue of its kind in the West Central Mountains for use by the public at large
- Building a key amenity for the community that will benefit many future generations
- Introducing conference business on a larger scale to the McCall area, bringing a concept of “predictability” instead of our current seasonal fluctuations
- Enhancing the development of the community to a year round area for residents and visitors alike
The dreams for the Center have coalesced into a vision for a community hub with a wide range of activities including continuing education, movies, film festivals, performances, exhibits, school functions, graduations, conferences, corporate retreats, award ceremonies, civic events, public meetings, and social events.
Activities are only limited to the user’s creativity and imagination to employ the Center’s conference facility, gathering space and theater.
