World's Largest Wood-Canvas Canoe Fleets
The closest I could come to a wood-canvas canoe association was the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association. There I started and expanded outward. I surveyed every canoe builder I could find and got responses from 51. These were, in fact, my best sources. I scoured the Internet. I sent emails that resulted in waves of responses as my messages were forwarded to friends. I tried prominent individuals like Benson Gray, Kirk Wipper, James Raffan, Craig Macdonald, Becky Mason, Ralph Frese, Bruce Hodgins and others, and authors like Sue Audette, Jerry Stelmok and others. I asked everyone for leads, tips and hunches, including all the camps on the list. I followed up on every suggestion. Each institution on the list was individually contacted and provided the data used in the list. The following associations were contacted during the search:
Alberta Camping Association
American Camping Association
American Canoe Association
Associations des camps du Quebec
British Columbia Camping Association
Camping Association of Nova Scotia
Canadian Canoe Museum
Canadian Recreational Canoe Association
Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness

International Camping Fellowship
Lake Champlain Maritime Museum

Maine Youth Camping Association
New Brunswick Camping Committee
Ontario Camping Association
