Oshkosh YMCA wanted to introduce a Fish Camp to the YMCA programs, so they contacted Captain Greg of Learn 2 Fish With Us. Captain Greg and Taylor worked together to build the Fish Camp program, which would happen weekly. The first session, would be educational based and would include Captain Greg presenting his Fishing Basics seminar which taught campers the skills and equipment needed to begin fishing. After the seminar, campers then attended hands on educational stations which taught them how to tie knots, cast safely and accurately and put bait on a hook. The following sessions of Fish Camp will be to visit and fish different locations throughout the Fox Valley area. How fun does that sound.
Today, June 14th was the first day of Fish Camp and did the campers have a blast learning about fishing!! After the seminar campers learned that they would receive a fully rigged fishing combo, Future Pro shirt and Fishing educational book thanks to the Future Angler Foundation, National Professional Anglers Association and Learn 2 Fishing With Us.
YMCA instructors utilized today’s session to build the framework, so they could do the fishing education at future Fish Camps
