Canoe Building Workshops
Who can attend?
Small craft building is a rewarding experience for people of all ages and abilities. Pride and patience are much more important than skill and previous experience. The only prerequisite is a desire to learn. Over the past 25 years of presenting workshops, we have worked with students from ages 13+, in combinations of family (child/parent/grandparent) and friends. If you would like a customized course for your group give us a call - we are quite flexible and can consider special requests from schools, clubs, etc.
Cost and Registration
Tuition for the seven-day workshop at Bear Mountain Boat Shop is $1200 (CDN). Please call for an information/registration package or DOWNLOAD THE REGISTRATION FORM.
Accommodations and Activities
We are happy to offer suggestions for local accommodation and activities. There are many options that may be tailored to your particular taste and budget. A variety of accommodations are available from simple to elegant bed and breakfasts, campgrounds, cottages and motels. The historic small city of Peterborough is known as the birthplace of the wooden canoe manufacturing industry. See examples of these craft while visiting the Canadian Canoe Museum.
