Fishing ... Now & Forever!
Take part in a good, old-fashioned pastime this summer! A relaxing summer activity for boys and girls, fishing enables campers to enjoy the great outdoors and observe the environment at a local lake. They will thrill at every part of this catch-and-release program. Campers are taught about protecting nature and fish in our local lakes as they search for signs of teeming wildlife in the area. As they learn about water conservation and environmental protection, campers gain a better understanding of their role in preserving our environment. Campers also take home their own fishing pole to ensure they continue to enjoy fishing now and forever.
