This one-week fishing camp is designed to spark the interest in fishing and the importance of wildlife and environmental conservation by first establishing a foundation of general water safety, local water awareness & basic fishing principals. Campers get indoor classroom-like lessons where they get to engage in hands on science experiments and demonstrations specific to the days outdoor fishing activity. After a quick lunch break, campers head outside for a fun packed day of outdoor/fishing activities and near-water experiences. Campers will also get to experience activities such as creek exploring, water balloon kickball and multiple water breaks! The camp practices what it preaches, therefore safety is our number one priority - so all campers are required to wear their Top Safety Child Auto Inflatable PFD w/ Whistle provided with registration package whenever participating in any activity conducted near or on the water. Aquiapeake maintains a 1-to-5 coach-to-camper ratio to ensure all campers get direct 1on1 time and supervision. Aquiapeake's GUPPIES Fish n' Fun program is developed firstly to imprint the importance of proper water awareness & safety practices when living, playing and exploring near or on the water. The program does specifically try to expose each camper to the multitude of outdoor activities and sciences that incorporate a well educated angler - with the aim to find the outdoor activity that sparks a lasting love and appreciation for the uniquely special ecosystem they have backyard access to year round, regardless if that activity ends up being fishing. However, it does also focus on the graduation aspect, with the goal being to come back to continue their outdoor education at the next camp level (Youth JR's).
