Poland in the Rockies is an 11-day international educational program bringing together university students, young professionals and distinguished speakers from Canada, the United States, Great Britain and Poland for an immersion in “things Polish.”

Set in the beautiful Rocky Mountain town of Canmore, Alberta from July 17-28, 2008, Poland in the Rockies is an intensive, intellectually stimulating program covering history and culture, discussing contemporary issues and the Polish heritage, making new friends, and creating links with the world-wide Polish community.

Formal lectures, films, and discussions, together with opportunities for one-on-one conversations with speakers during communal meals, hikes, sightseeing, campfires and hikes create a unique learning experience.

The participants range from recent immigrants to 4th generation descendents of immigrants; ethnically Polish or part Polish or not Polish at all; fluent in Polish, limited Polish or speaking no Polish at all. But whatever their background, they are drawn together in a discovery of a rich cultural heritage: literature and art both classical and avant-garde, a democratic tradition based on freedom and respect for the individual, and a history of multi-cultural harmony. They are drawn together by the common experience of immigration and the political, social and economic crises that brought their forbears to America. Knowledge breaks down barriers among themselves, while also creating a deeper understanding of their country of origin.

Our objective is to stimulate an interest among English-speaking Americans and Canadians in the Polish narrative; to create a network of well-informed and dynamic friends of Poland; and to encourage Polish Americans and Polish Canadians to integrate their identity into the mainstream of North American life.

Organized on a not-for-profit basis, by the Polish Canadian Association of Calgary in partnership with the Canadian Foundation for Polish Studies in Montreal, Poland in the Rockies has the support of many Polonia organizations, professional groups, businesses and individual Canadians and Americans. Their financial contributions, as Sponsors or as Friends of Poland in the Rockies, are a reflection of their belief that a symposium of such high standards is much needed.

Scholarships are granted on the basis of a student’s curriculum vitae, letters of reference, and the essay explaining the motivation for attending. A full scholarship includes tuition, accommodation (11 nights), three meals per day, transportation costs in Alberta, and group excursions. It does notinclude the cost of return airfare to Calgary.

Comments from participants in Poland in the Rockies

Poland in the Rockies hit on exactly the right formula. Norman Davies. I must say that Poland in the Rockies reawakened my zeal for involvement in matters of Polonia. Mariusz Borowicz, Chicago

Stimulating days, sleepless nights, Newsweek’s senior editor, a Globe and Mail journalist, history, literature, politics, art scholars and 33 students: The seminar was not only an intellectual journey, but an opportunity to accept my dual identity by discovering people who share similar experiences and interests. Kinia Adamczyk, Montreal

If a program like this had been offered at the time when I was a student, I’m sure I would have jumped at the opportunity. Andrew Nagorski, Newsweek

I’ve never been a part of a group that was so welcoming and generous. I loved the fact that we all embraced our differences and were happy to be together. Marta Bladek, CUNY

I truly feel a duty to pay something back to the organization that has given me so much… In a way, PitR belongs to all of us… and we need to help make the next conference happen. Bart Bonikowski, Princeton

What a privilege it was to have attended Poland in the Rockies. The last weeks have really been among the most important in my life… being immersed in all things Polish. Eric Bednarski, Halifax

Thanks to you and your outstanding dedication to the Polish youth in North America and Europe. You have ignited a spark in each every one of the PitR students to do the same. Kamil Mroz, Ottawa

Now I must take what I learned and the way that I’ve changed and apply it to everyday life… On this 62nd anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, I wish you all the courage and perseverance to pursue your brightest of futures. Karolina Piotrowska, Vancouver

I’ve been to many conferences; this is the first that will stay with me forever. Stan Oziewicz, Globe & Mail

I just wanted to thank you for everything... I learned a lot about my roots, but it was always also fun and the atmosphere was from the very beginning so nice and welcoming. Katarina Karsten, Germany

Thanks to Tony and Irene for starting up this family and I’m sure we will continue the tradition for years and decades to come. Anna Lech, Ottawa

Poland in the Rockies was an amazing experience. It validated my Polish-Canadianness, it opened my eyes to how much I have yet to learn and know about Poland, and it has most of all encouraged me to seek out more information and people involved in the community. Kasia Wisniewska, Montreal

I didn't like that last day of saying goodbye at all. I do want to see everyone again and that we are not just friends but colleagues. We have so much to offer each other so lets work together and keep connected. I have a lot of ideas for the forum and group we should start: PitR level 2. David Husar, San Francisco

Participating in Poland in the Rockies provided me with an opportunity to meet a new generation of Polonia, one with a completely new way of doing things. This was a unique experience for me-I have never attended a seminar where young people gathered to learn about Poland in a modern critical way…The young people I met made a very favourable impression on me; they were thoughtful, critical, seeking information,--It was obviously a well chosen group of young people with a bright future….They were well prepared to reject ant-Polish stereotypes and to stand up to anyone belittling Poles or any other ethnic group. Krzysztof Zanussi
