SCAMP is an extremely capable small boat; at 11 feet 11 inches in length. That 100 square foot sail drives here at a nice speed even in light airs as seen here.

The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding (www.nwboatschool.org) hosted the first SCAMP Camp (sm) August 6th – 17th, 2012 at the Northwest Maritime Center in Port Townsend WA. www.nwmaritime.org/

The next SCAMP Camps are scheduled in the same location March 4th – 15th, 2013 and again in August, 2013; check the School’s website for details.

SCAMP Camp (sm) is taught by SCAMP’s designer, New Zealander John Welsford, and well-known small boat adventurer Howard Rice. 10 SCAMPs were built from CAD kits cut by Turnpoint Design of Port Townsend during the August 2012 workshop, and a total of twelve students participated in the class. Students came from as far away as Germany and from all across the US to attend the class.
