Since 2001, Camp Winona in Bridgton, ME, has offered its 13- to 16-year-old campers a chance to build a canoe each summer. By 2004 they had built four E.M. White 18' trip canoes, which they use in their canoe trip program. This canoe was launched August 1, 2004. The pictured campers are (left to right) Christian Smith, Joe Polivka, Ted Pejeau, and Will Mayner.
Jason Perkins teaches a boatbuilding class at Kingswood High School in Wolfeboro, NH and built this 16' E.M. White-designed White Water canoe with his class. They used plans from Gil Gilpatrick's book, "Building a Strip Canoe," and followed his instructions "almost to a tee." They used Northern white cedar for the hull with ash for gunwales and seats. They built everything from scratch and even milled their own lumber.
