4-H Fish Camp is open to any adult/child “team” interested in learning more about fishing. 

Fish Camp is a weekend filled with fun and facts on fishing in Central Illinois.  Programs will be given by fishing professionals, fisheries biologists, and University of Illinois Extension staff to begin or enhance your fishing skills.  You will learn more about how to catch largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, and channel catfish.  Fishing tips, new lures, bait, equipment, knots, fish behavior, fish management and cooking will be included in the program. There will be plenty to learn and plenty of time to fish!

Each adult may attend camp with up to three youth campers. Youth campers must be at least 8 years of age. 4-H membership is not required.

Fish Camp will be held on the weekend of May 12-13, 2012 at 4-H Memorial Camp in Monticello. Participants will enjoy plenty of space at this 250-acre camp, a private 16-acre lake full of hungry fish, hiking trails, rustic cabins, and a large dining hall.

A $49 fee per person covers the complete program, lodging, and four meals. Pre-registration is required. To register, contact 4-H Memorial Camp at (217) 762-2741 or send email to Curt Sinclair at mailto:sinclair@illinois.edu. Registrations will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
