Fish Camp is a hands-on, immersive adventure offered by Trout Unlimited and the Grand Canyon Council. Scouts will earn and learn both Fishing and Fly-Fishing Merit badges as they become proficient in technical skills like casting and fly tying.
Who should attend?
Any registered Scout who is at least 13 years old and completed eight grade by the start of camp. All campers must be able to pass the BSA Swim Test.
How do I prepare?
We have several resources available to help you prepare for your week at camp!
Participants will have the opportunity to earn their Fishing and Fly Fishing Merit Badge.
After arriving at Camp Geronimo, Fish Camp participants will be shuttled to R-C Scout Ranch where they will spend their nights in cabins. R-C Scout Ranch features Christopher Creek, a stock pond, and better accessibility to off-property fishing locations.
Fish Camp will provide a 15-passenger van to transport participants to the various fishing locations and learning experiences.
Some anglers are comfortable with their own gear and we encourage you to bring it if this applies to you; however, the camp will also be able to provide rods and equipment to anyone without gear. All participants will also be receiving some awesome fishing swag.
In addition to your Annual Health & Medical Record, all Fish Camp participants need to bring their Trout Unlimited Consent Form and Trout Unlimited Photo Waiver.
