Kids fishing camp

TU Wisconsin State Council Kids Fishing Camp

As was presented at the October state council meeting, TU Wisconsin is organizing a fishing camp for kids. This will be a great opportunity for youth to have a chance to learn about conservation, fishing and water safety.

The state council is putting together a committee to develop a curriculum and then assemble volunteers to chaperone and present the curriculum to the kids. We are looking for 4-6 members to join Bob Haase and myself on the board committee for this camp. The planned duration of the camp will be 4 days with on site accommodations for students and staff, and we are looking forward to having 12-15 students. The site for this will be determined in the near future and I have contacted several camps for date availability. Please help us put together this great endeavor and opportunity for the youth.

If you are not interested in helping organize the camp, please consider volunteering for the chaperone and instructor positions. We will need 15-18 volunteers for various activities and positions.

This will be a great opportunity for the kids and also for our volunteers to help spread the wealth of knowledge we have all accumulated.

Thank you in advance. Any questions or all who are interested can contact Bob Haase or Linn Beck.

The youth fishing camp will be July 24-27th at Pine Lake Camp which is located nine miles south of Waupaca, WI. It will be open to youths 12-16 years old.

Wisconsin Trout Unlimited is looking for people to help with spin and fly fishing, stream selection, sportsmanship and ethics, stream restoration, entomology, casting, tying, etc.  If you can only assist the primary instructors, we can use you also. 

If you can commit to a day or part of a day, contact Bob Haase or Lin Beck at the numbers listed above. 

This is a great opportunity to teach the next generation of trout fishermen.
