World's Largest Wood-Canvas Canoe Fleets  2015 

Compiled by Brian Back


Camp: Although the survey sought all institutions (schools, clubs, outfitters, renters, camps, etc) with 15 or more active, wood-canvas canoes, only organized camps fit the criteria. 

   Camp - Located on Lake Temagami.

   Camp - Located in Algonquin Park.

There are several institutions that operate two or more camps or programs within one legal entity, common ownership or business - Keewaydin of Ontario, Taylor Statten Camps with Wapomeo and Ahmek, Northway-Wendigo, Songadeewin and Keewaydin of Vermont. The camps within the entity were treated as separate institutions if they met ALL of the following conditions: 

1. Separate names; 

2. Separate locations; 

3. Separate directors and program management. 

4. Separate canoe-fleet management.

Taylor Statten camps (Ahmek and Wapomeo), the Keewaydins and Songadeewin met the criteria to be treated as separate institutions.

Prov/State: The location of the camp facility, rather than the office.

Wood Canvas: The count of active, wood-canvas, paddling canoes. Active canoes are those that go "into the water," thereby excluding canoes that are on permanent display. The count includes all lengths and canoes in for repair that will be returned to active use. Counts must be 15 or larger. Wood-fiberglass canoes excluded, even if once canvas-covered.

Total Fleet: The count of all active paddling canoes of all lengths, constructed of any material. Includes wood-canvas canoes.

% Fleet: The percentage of wood-canvas canoes in the total canoe fleet. Wood Canvas divided by Total Fleet.

Whitewater:  Wood-canvas canoes used in class 2 or class 3 whitewater: Yes or No.

Re-Build:  Wood-canvas canoes re-built (at a minimum re-canvassed) in-house: Yes or No.

Build: Wood-canvas canoes built in-house for addition to the fleet: Yes or No.

Founding Year: Founding date provided by camp and does not imply continuous operation.

Program:  Program type. G = General or mixed activities; C = Canoe tripping only; GT = General activities with a strong emphasis on canoe tripping; CB = canoe tripping and backpacking trips only.

Average Daily Enrollment: This is the average, daily, camper (or paying participant) enrollment during the summer season. This is arrived at by adding up the total enrollment each day of the summer season and dividing by the number of days in the season. This excludes staff.

Gender: Gender of the campers or paying participants. C = co-ed, or boys and girls; B = boys only; G = girls only.

* Flying Moose Lodge is an organized summer camp.
