Thrill of the Catch

Go out on a reel adventure and discover the thrill of fishing. Each day we’ll travel to a new lake or pond around the city or in Kananaskis Country. You’ll learn how to identify fish species, discover the best places to find fish, and we’ll teach you some basic fishing techniques. Some fishing holes can only be found by hiking to them, so be ready for a fun fishing trek. We’ll also play outdoor games and maybe swim in lakes when the group is not fishing. Our goal is to ensure that everyone is having fun and learning, even if you don’t catch a fish.This camp prioritizes safety and fun by spending every day outside, rain or shine!
