Devils Lake Kids' Fishing Camp is Aug. 6-11

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is a co-sponsor for the 14th annual Kids Fishing Camp at Devils Lake Aug. 6-11.

Hosted by the Devils Lake Park Board at Lakewood Bible Camp, the camp is open to all youngsters ages 8-13 years old. Game and Fish volunteers from the Lure ‘em for Life fish club will provide classroom instruction and boats to help campers enjoy a week of learning about fishing and all the other activities that come with a summer camp.

Some of the educational sessions featured include boating safety, casting, fish identification, fish anatomy, fish habits, knot tying, tackle and equipment, lure making, cleaning and cooking fish, shore fishing and more. Participants will also spend about 3-4 hours a day on the lake fishing.

The camp fee is $300 per participant and registration is open until the maximum of 50 participants is reached. The fee includes all lodging, meals and expenses. Lakewood Bible Camp is located on the east shore of Creel Bay, 1 mile south and 2 miles west of Devils Lake.
