Maine Canoe Symposium Set for June 7-9


- Advertisment -

Peter Marshall and Jim Andrews will headline this year’s Maine Canoe Symposium, now in its 27th year, taking place June 7-9 in Bridgton, Maine.

The Symposium features events, workshops, special guests and children’s activities, and as always, is designed for all levels and ages of paddlers to enjoy.

The Symposium allows participants of all ages to develop an understanding and appreciation of the diversity of North American canoeing heritage and to develop canoeing and related skills through educational workshops, presentations, and hands-on instruction.

The Maine Canoe Symposium has been taking place at Camp Winona on Moose Pond in Bridgton, ME, since 1986. Each year our pro staff of canoeists gather at this volunteer-run, non-profit weekend to share their skills with about 150 participants from all over the region. They offer more than 50 dry-land and on-water workshops in paddling, poling and wilderness camping technique.

“We gather to share a love of all things canoeing, learn what we can from some of the best canoeists in the world, and help future generations discover the witchcraft of a canoe,” said the symposium’s Lisa DeHart. “Each year we feature two visual presentations, this year we will feature Maine Guide Jim Andrews, who traveled from Kittery to Fort Kent using only people powered means; and Peter Marshall, who with three other guys traveled 2600 miles above the 60th parallel, from the Pacific Ocean to Hudson Bay.”

Becky Mason and Reid McLachlan will be on hand to teach paddling technique, in addition to the renowned kids program and womens program.
