Summer Camp: Animal Attire
This virtual camp will feature a 1-hour live Zoom session each day of the week. Each session will build on the previous day, covering fish adaptations and behaviors, lure selection, fish pole maintenance and set up, baiting a hook, casting techniques, hook removal and much more. Cost includes a materials kit, detailed itinerary and a Zoom link.

This camp is for children ages 9-11 by the first day of camp.

We are unable to make age exceptions because activities are geared to cognitive, emotional and physical abilities for this camp's specific age range.

Registrants can pick up their camp kit from the General Offices front desk the week prior to and during the camp week.

Email with questions or concerns the day of a program.
