Faribault Park & Rec Summer Activities
Park & Rec FISH CAMPS
Learn-to-Fish Camps for Boys & Girls!
Fishing is an age-old activity that dates back to the beginning of time when man first saw fish under water, recognizing them as a source of food. Ever since, people have been figuring out clever ways to bring fish to the dinner table! In this way, Park & Rec wants to help youngsters ages 8-15 learn to fish and experience the thrill and joy that comes along with it. Adult mentors will help kids learn the basic techniques of fishing through hands-on bank fishing and breakout sessions. Camps meet at several locations in Faribault. Three programs are being offered. For details, email email@example.com.
