Fish Camp 2013 will consist of five days (June 23-28 , 2013) of intense fun and hands-on activities blended into a creative learning experience that provides the broadest possible exposure to natural resources careers with an emphasis on aquaculture, fisheries and aquatic ecology.

The camp is open to high school students age 15-18. Due to the hands-on nature of the camp participation will be limited to 25 students so register early. Students will have the opportunity to make their own lures, fish for a trophy size bass in the AU fisheries research ponds (one 2009 camper caught a 10 lb fish and in 2012 we found one 11lb, 6 oz), kayak in the Coosa river, seine a fish pond, see flying carp and much more.   

The schedule below provides an idea of the types of encounters students can expect.  The 2011 Fish Camp was a resounding success. The students that participated expounded about how much fun they had and how much they had learned. Each experience enlightened them about the world around them and helped them bond with one another.

The fee for the 2013 fish camp is $589 which covers all food, lodging, transportation and activities.  This camp involves a lot of field/outdoor activity and is a great opportunity to learn from renowned fisheries, aquaculture and aquatic ecology professionals.
