Our day camp for 9-14 year olds is designed to teach the entire process of fishing from rigging rods, tying knots, baiting hooks, to fishing from a boat, all while introducing campers to the great wealth of fishing opportunities the area has to offer.
We have access to some great private ponds where campers are assured success and will split our time between the ponds and the James River where we will chase down our own river monsters, flathead and blue catfish up to 30 lbs right here in the city. Some days we may travel out to the Chesapeake Bay to test our luck in the saltwater for drum, sea trout, & flounder.
Scouts may also earn their fishing merit badge.
