Campers participating in the summer camp fishing program are taught how to bait the rod, how to reel in and net. We follow catch-and-release guidelines. Fishing at summer camp is a great way to get to know your peers and learn one of America's favorite past times. Fishing offers the joy of contemplation in a gorgeous natural setting and time for quiet conversation with a good friend. It's not all about mellow, however. Serious action is required the moment you feel that tug.
