2022 SVSFE Rec Angling Day Camp
The day camp program will provide youth ages 10 -14 with the opportunity to fish for different species, learning different angling techniques along with exposure to land base knowledge with a focus on angling.
Wellman Lake: Day trips to Wellman Lake will consist of fishing from a boat – trolling, casting, jigging, etc. and learning various techniques to catch different species. Species targeted will be Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, and Yellow Perch.
Red Deer River: Day trips to the Red Deer River will consist of primarily shore fishing and exploring a larger variety of warm water species. Species targeted will be Walleye, Northern Pike, Yellow Perch, Bullhead, Freshwater Drum, and Carp.
Swan River: Day trips to the Swan River will be facilitated at the Red Road Compass Land Based Learning Site. Activities planned are a variety of traditional land-based learning workshops including smoking fish, fire teaching, making fiber line with nettle and a medicine walk.
Each day camp will run from 8 am to 5 pm. Day Camp drop off and pick up will be at the ECFC in Swan River and transportation will be provided to fishing destinations. Participants are expected to be dressed appropriately for the weather with extra clothes. Meals, snacks and fishing gear will be supplied. Youth are welcome to bring their own rods and tackle. Program open to participants ages 10-14 who are eligible to attend a maximum of one day camp per fishing destination (unless a vacant spot is available). Limit spaces available for each day therefore placement is on a first come, first served basis. Spots are not guaranteed until contacted by camp coordinators. Additional form/waiver to sign will be required at that time. We hope to have camp schedules completed prior to July 1, 2022. To register, submit an online application through the form below or paper applications are available at the ECFC.
