Send The Kids To A Fishing Camp
New Hampshire Fish and Game Department
What could be more fun for a kid than learning how to fish while spending a week at summer camp? A special week-long overnight session (July 31-August 5, 2011) at Barry Conservation Camp in Berlin, N.H., gives youth -- boys and girls ages 10-16 -- the chance to become better anglers as they work with trained Let's Go Fishing staff and volunteer instructors. Novice anglers will learn the basic skills and equipment needed to get started fishing, while campers with more experience will work on improving their fishing skills and exploring the finer details of the angling world. Cost for the week is $475. Youth under age 16 in New Hampshire don't need a license to fish, so come along and learn how to catch the big one!
