Fishing and Boaters Safety Camp.

We’re making memories with friends by the lake with our new Florida Fish and Wildlife Freshwater Fishing and Boaters Safety Camp!

This camp provides instruction on a variety of fishing skills, including fish identification and biology, basic boat navigation and angler techniques. With our water safety instructors by their side, campers will gain an appreciation for the sport of fishing as well as ethical angling. Campers will also gain confidence as they learn how to handle small John boats with electric motors. Under Blue Waters freshwater fishing and basic boating skills camp is based on the successful pilot program developed by FWC. A fishing Camp program that goes far beyond helping young people learn a healthy lifetime sport and the importance of conservation stewardship.
