About FoxWorx Paddles
FoxWorx started as Camp Paddles in the late 1960's by Al and Joan Camp. Al was a marathon canoe racer and built his own racing canoes and paddles. He then started selling them to other racers.After over 25 years of building paddles and wanting more time to paddle and travel, we are closing the shop in early 2022. Thanks to all of you that have supported us over the years.
We (Dale and Bev Fox and our sons Liam and Andy) bought the business in 1996 and moved it to Bainbridge. I started my interest in canoeing in the early 70's when I worked at Grumman's Canoe assembling aluminum canoes. I began flatwater canoe racing at that time and raced for many years. Our family loves recreational canoeing and have paddled many miles in the Adirondacks (our favorite spot) and many other rivers in the Northeast.
Our paddles are handmade with the best materials we can find. Most of the lumber used is harvested locally in upstate New York. We started with Al Camp's original design for the Standard but have added over 10 new designs of paddles based on our 30+ years of paddling experience. We combine the native woods to the newest composite materials to create lightweight tough paddles. The basswood shafts on FoxWorx Paddles have a warm comfortable feel and the blades are designed for a quiet entry with a solid catch and stiff power phase.
FoxWorx is located in the upper Susquehanna River Valley and is within an hour of 6 different rivers and 2 hours of the Adirondacks. If you are passing by, stop in and we will let you know where some of our favorite spots are. Enough web surfing....now go out and paddle
See you on the water. .
