It is time to get ready for winter folks. We have DIY kits available with everything you need to get your winter gear outfit. If you want to make your own gear but would like our guidance, then a workshop is for you! We are heading to Waterloo and Peterborough this fall to get your full kit assembled. Check out the dates and register today! WORKSHOPS
For some odd reason our winter moccasin kit pricing was way off this past month. So if you notice a price on our website that just seems totally wrong, please let us know! We fixed the moccasin kit, but will be keeping our eye out for any other discrepancies.
Thank you for your patience! Here’s a picture of two male moose to make up for it.
UPDATE: August 7
Thank you SO much for all of your interest. We had many great interviews, so much so that we felt we could make a decision. We have accepted help from across the pond again this year and am sure we’ve made a great choice. Thank you again for your interest and if you would like to hand in an application for future years please do not hesitate.
We are looking to expand our team for the 2019 season! If you think you’d like to spend the winter with us, please click the page link below for more information.

Training Camp/Vast Horizons is SOLD OUT! Only 4 spots left on our Life on the Trapline expedition and our three-week trip has shown a ton of interest. People are arranging their schedules now so don’t delay if this was going to be your year with us!
We’re looking at adding a one week Magical Mystery Tour in the La Cloche hills so if you don’t see something that gets you exciting- perhaps hold tight.
As spring turns into summer, and the sun starts its slow slide back to the depths of December, we can’t help but start thinking of winter again!
Our 2019 expedition schedule is now live:
- (UPDATE: Only 1 spot left!) Training Camp and Vast Horizons is our classic intro to traditional winter camping;
- (2 spots left!) For those that can’t commit a full week, we have a few spots available on Training Camp only;
- By popular demand, we’re offering Life on the Trapline a second time;
- Further down the Missinaibi River is a 3-week epic, on a frozen, wild river!
If there’s something you were hoping for and don’t see it on the schedule above, we’d love to hear from you,as we may be able to squeeze in one more public trip alongside some of our private offerings.
Hey everyone! We finally are fulfilling the promise to get some more videos and products out to you. Here is a video explaining how to paint on a life-prolonging sole to your moccasins. They are soft and flexible which retains the beauty of the buckskin moccasin.
And this is a short video on your yearly maintenance of your sole and what to do for reapplication.
As promised we now have soling kits available for sale and now can ship them! Prolong the life of you moccasins and get many more miles from them. Your hard work is worth protecting!
We are selling our gently used Iridium 9555 for over $500 off the price of a new unit. Check it out at the link below.
It is finally here to stay! Spring!!! A whopping +8*C today and we’re starting to clean-out the closets.
We have been holding on to these fur jackets since we started the business. I think it’s clear that we’re not doing anything with them so we want you, our loyal customers to have them! If you were planning on starting next years’ winter projects early, then hop on board and get a jacket to go with your purchase!
Check our our FREE STUFF page for what available.
A massive thank you to everyone who supported us through this season! New customers and participants, and trusted loyal followers alike, we thank you. You are helping us make our dream at the Pond come true. We are now back, working on firewood collection, filing our tax returns and working away at the orders you’ve placed this winter. With this lingering winter, we are hoping to get your orders out so that you still may be able to use your new gear this season! We will be posting photos on our Facebook page of the season in the coming days so stay tuned.
We also will be releasing our summer schedule shortly so don’t forget to sign-up for our newsletter to have first crack at it! Happy Spring!!!!
