Families fishing at the Go Fish Education Center

The Go Fish Education Center is hosting four Fishing Day Camps this June and July. Limited space is available and pre-registration is required.

Camps are designed for youth, age 7-15, who would like to get outside and learn the basics of fishing. Participating kids will learn how to fish, receive safety tips, casting instructions and how to clean your catch. They will also learn about fish biology, habitats and conservation – all through guided instruction, tours and educational activities.

  • Session 2: June 22-24; 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. daily

Cost for the camp is $100 (due on the first day of each session), which includes admission to the Go Fish Education Center, educational instruction, use of equipment and bait. Campers will need to bring their own lunch, snacks and a water bottle. Register for camp by e-mailing marion.baker@dnr.ga.gov.
