Ice Fishing for Kids
Ice Camp is a popular industry-leading youth education program that is open to the public, and free of charge. Ice Camp events are advertised in area schools, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, YMCA and surrounding communities.
Ice Camp consists of in-class and on-ice fishing tutorials delivered by experienced, DNR certified NAIFC Pro-Staff instructors. In addition to demonstration of the latest techniques and sponsor provided equipment, the curriculum promotes safety, conservation and environmental stewardship.
Ice Camp starts in the classroom and finishes on the ice. In between, participants are invited to take a break from the action and enjoy a hot meal and beverage. Sponsors make available equipment and prizes for the activity, and kids who sign up and participate receive complimentary ice rods and tackle used in the tutorials.
Although Ice Camp is geared toward kids, all family members are encouraged to attend regardless of age. Introduction to the newest technology coupled with professional guidance gives both the parent and child a memorable ice fishing experience using sponsor products.
