This one-week fishing camp is designed as the next progression step from the program focuses established in the GUPPIES program. However, the campers experience their education in real-time and hands-on. At this stage the program moves mostly on the water. Campers will get the opportunity to fish from kayaks and professionaltournament bass boats daily – never venturing further then 2 miles from Aquia Harbour Marina. 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 JR. YOUTH ANGLERS 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 Anglers).
