Fish Camp at Camp Geronimo
Scouts BSA, Venturing, Exploring, and Sea Scouts
The Arizona mountains are well regarded for their bountiful lakes, and streams, for freshwater and fly fishing. Camp Geronimo is in the center of it all, which makes our Scouting Fish Camp such a great opportunity for Scouts and Scout Leaders looking for a new advanced summer camping opportunity.
Camp Geronimo | Session 6
Fish Camp is an angling program offered by Trout Unlimited and the Grand Canyon Council, BSA. This is not your grandfather’s cane pole fishing experience–Participants will learn the ecology necessary to select proper fly or bait, understand where to cast, and master the art of provoking fish to attack your fly or lure. Interested scouts will earn and learn both Fishing and Fly-Fishing Merit badges as they become proficient in technical skills like casting and fly tying. Join our expert staff and fish the beautiful streams and lakes of Northern Arizona in this unique scouting adventure.
Any registered Scout who is at least 13 years old by camp. Also, those who attend must be able to pass the BSA Swimmer’s Test. Girls under 18 are encouraged to participate in this program, but they may need to provide a female adult leader, please contact the Camp Register to inquire.
Can leaders attend?
Absolutely! Fish Camp provides the primary leadership, but other adult leaders are encouraged to attend along with their Scouts.
Fish Camp will provide a 15-Passenger Van to transport participants to the various fishing locations and learning experiences.
Most anglers are comfortable with their own gear and we encourage you to bring your own gear; however, the camp will have rods and equipment necessary to support those without gear. All participants will be receiving some awesome fishing swag.
