Having a great fishing story from your childhood is a must, and Calleva’s Fishing camp is going to make sure that happens for your child.
Whether your child is a novice or an experienced angler, a week in the fishing program is right for you. Campers will spend the week exploring ponds, creeks, lakes, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay, in hopes of reeling in the “big one”. During the week, campers will learn how to use both natural and artificial bait and will fish from a variety of locations. We will be fishing for small and largemouth bass, trout, fallfish, muskie, catfish, and maybe even the elusive snake head fish. Campers build their skills throughout the week before embarking on the overnight Thursday and Friday, where we’ll fish for striped bass and rockfish. By weeks end, campers will understand the principles of what it means to be a responsible angler, both for the fish and the natural environment. Although fishing is the main part of this adventure, the Fishing camp’s itinerary leaves room for a fun swimming hole or another side adventure if opportunity strikes!
Optional GearBags to purchase:
This year, Calleva is offering campers the option to purchase a GearBag during checkout which includes all the camping gear you will need for your overnight. These duffle bags come home with your camper on the bus before the overnight so it can be packed with personal clothes and toiletries!
We are aware that there are concerns regarding Rain & Storms at camp. Sometimes the weather requires a change in itinerary for water-related activities and overnights. If high water conditions cause safety concerns, Fishing groups will utilize a pre-planned alternative overnight location. We will continue with outdoor activities as long as it’s possible to be safe and with happy campers.
