Downeast Foxfire Camp

Friday, August 17, 2018 to Sunday, August 26, 2018

Downeast Foxfire Camp is a ten-day rowing and sailing expedition which starts and ends in Machiasport, Maine. We will travel in a Bantry Bay gig (ten oars, dipping lug sails) to rugged, spruce-covered islands and peninsulas, celebrating the folk traditions of the Maine coast and practicing our best Leave No Trace camp craft techniques. Together we will learn traditional crafts including spoon carving and birch bark container building, sustainable forestry techniques and island farming. Expect to be challenged, inspired and to make life-long friends as we ebb and flow along with the 12 foot tides in an environment of support, safety and encouragement. $450.
