Summer camp offers a chance for kids to learn about fishing

The Kids Let’s Go Fishing! program is back for this summer with the newest summer camp in Miami.

The Fishing and Conservation Trust, in partnership with the Miami-Dade Cooperative Extension Sea Grant program and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are offering three five-day fishing camps at Bayside Marketplace, Slip 24, 401 Biscayne Blvd. in downtown Miami. Dates are June 11- 15, July 9-13 and Aug. 6-10. Hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Each camp will include mornings of educational activities and afternoons of fishing aboard the 56-foot Coast Guard approved Reward Won. Fishing styles will include: anchoring, drifting, trolling, live-bait catching and use, and use of artificial lures. Educational activities will teach campers about ethical angling skills, boat safety, basic fishing skills for all types of fishing, fish identification and anatomy, and resource awareness.

Enrollment is open for children ages 8- 13. Each five-day session is limited to 20 attendees. The cost is $500 per session and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Fishing And Conservation Trust, a 501(c)3 Florida Not for Profit Corporation to fund fishing events for the underserved communities of Dade County.

To register, call the Fishing and Conservation Trust at 305-372-9470. You can find more information on the Kids Let’s Go Fishing! Summer camp program online at <www.kidsletsgofishing.com> or by calling 305- 372-9470.
