You may of noticed that we have a new person working in the shop. That is Elisa Schine who will be working with us for the next eight weeks. She is really a wilderness canoe guide for Camp Darrow located on Grand Lake in Maine. She'll be working in the shop until the camp opens up for the summer. Elisa will be guiding their six week long canoe trip into the wilds of Labrador Canada. Camp Darrow has an exceptional program in that the kids spend just a few days in base camp and all the rest of time they are on very exciting canoeing adventures. They also only use wood and canvas canoes so they take the time to teach the campers proper canoeing techniques and how to take responsibility for their equipment. Elisa is also a college English major so maybe I should be having her write the bogs.
Welcome to the Blog of the Northwoods Canoe Web Cam. Located in Atkinson, Maine, we have been custom building new and restoring wooden boats and canoes for over 30 years. We specialize in wood and canvas canoe construction but we also work on a wide selection of wooden boats. In addition to the work on the boats and canoes we offer a wide range of specialized canoe material to those working on their own boat. Private classes are offered to those that want to come to the shop and build their own wooden canoe.
The web cam in the shop is very recent and we are still in the experimental stage with it.
