The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail is offering a "Learn to Fish" summer camp for kids ages 9 to 15 this summer. Campers will be given their own rod, reel, and tackle box to use during the week and take home to keep.

Taught by expert fishermen, each camper will learn the latest catch and release techniques, bait and lure preferences, boating safety and navigation, oar and trolling motor operation, rod and reel assembly, casting techniques, water quality testing, and fish cleaning. Once trained, campers will pilot their own boats and apply their newfound knowledge and skills on Flag Lake.

Fishing Tournaments, Rowing Competitions, and Casting Contests will be held and on the last day of each week, campers will treat their families to a Fish Fry and fishing on the lake.

Summer Camp sessions are June 8 to 12, June 15 to 19, and June 22 to 26. Tuition is $200 for each session. Class size is limited. To register, contact Bruce Brown at or call 352-429-5566. The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail is located at 11490 Monte Vista Road in Clermont.

Florida Scrub-Jay Trail will hold three five day sessions of its Learn to Fish Camp for kids this June
