Program Description: This one-week fishing camp is designed to spark the interest in fishing and teach basic fishing tactics, as well as getting our younger campers outdoors and having fun! Campers will fish a combination of public and private ponds and reservoirs, they may even find some time splash around in a local river in search of crayfish, frogs and salamanders.
Safety is our number one priority! All campers will wear life jackets when in the water or on a boat. We maintain a 1-to-5 counselor to camper ratio to ensure that every camper gets some one-on-one time each day to advance his/her skills.
What to Bring: A lunch/snack(s). NC Outside will provide all bait and tackle, rods and reels, and life jackets.
