LDWF Hosting Kids Fishing Day Camp in July at Woodworth Outdoor Education Center

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is hosting a Kids Fishing Day Camp for children 10 to 15 years of age at Woodworth Outdoor Education Center from July 6 through 9.

The Monday through Thursday day camp will provide activities from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the education center located at 661 Robinson Bridge Road in Woodworth, south of Alexandria.  The camp is designed to create responsible anglers by providing campers with an appreciation for the sport of fishing and the basic skills needed to enjoy this outdoor recreation activity.

Campers will be supervised by LDWF education staff and volunteers during activities that will include how to rig fishing equipment, fish identification, casting, lure selection, how to clean the catch, boating safety and much more.

Registration fees are $75 per child and the registration deadline is June 30, 2015. The camp is limited to the first 20 participants registered. Lunch will be provided daily and each child will receive a rod/reel combo and stocked tackle box provided by the Association of Louisiana Bass Clubs and the Woodmen of the World.
