Dates:

June 11, 2018 - July 27, 2018 - Regular Weeks

Regular camp weeks for girls and boys ages 7-12

July 30, 2018 - August 10, 2018 - Advanced Weeks

Advanced camp weeks for girls and boys ages 9-14

Campers will not only learn about basic fishing techniques, conservation, marine biology, and aquatic organisms, but they will also participate in fun environmental fishing games, arts and crafts activities, and travel to different field trip sites!

These camps are remarkably hands-on and teach young anglers and aspiring marine biologists to be stewards of the environment. Every participant will also receive an IGFA Camp T-shirt, a goodie bag, and a free rod and reel and tackle box combo compliments of Fish Florida. Camper/Counselor ratio is never more than 1:10. All of our counselors are CPR and First Aid Certified, and most have either obtained or are working towards a degree in marine biology or a related field. Meals and snacks are not included in camp fees; campers must bring lunch, EXTRA snacks, and a re-usable water bottle every day. Counselors do provide water throughout the day.
