"REEL" Fishing

 Boys 4th-12th grade

This BOYS ONLY WEEK will be a fishing adventure! We’ll do our best to “try it all”. As our fishing kids say, “It’s about the fishing, not the catching”, but they surely DO enjoy the catching!

We’ll start the week with our fishing kids reviewing the basics. We’ll rig rods, tie fishing knots, practice casting techniques, and, time permitting, try our hand at tackle crafting. During the week, campers will have opportunities to use both spinning rods and fly rods. We will fish from shore or use canoes and kayaks when needed.

We’ll keep busy fishing at a variety of local spots, including old favorites and some new locations.
We will primarily target warm water fish like smallmouth bass, bluegills, perch, and catfish.
All fishing equipment will be provided, but campers are welcome to bring their own rod to be checked out by our fishing coach, Jeanne Lilienthal.

Fishing kids should bring hard sole water shoes, sunglasses, hat, sun screen, bug spray, and a disposable camera to record those great catches! 


A quick note from our Fishing Instructor, Jeanne Lilienthal.

All of our Reel Fishing programs will be appropriate for campers with beginner thru intermediate skills. For those of you who participated last year, we’ll change things up enough every week to keep it interesting and fun. For those who have never participated in this program before, we stress helping each other, so beginners will do fine! Fishing skills improve the more they are shared. Join us for one week or both, we’ll have fun! So many fish, so little time… If you have questions, feel free to contact me at jmlilie@aol.com
