This new program for the summer of 2014 will introduce young people from the ages 10 to 18 to fishing the diverse waters of coastal Mississippi. The five-day camp will include sessions on the water, in the lab, and in the kitchen as students learn everything from tying a hook on a line to finding and catching fish to cleaning and cooking their catch. Details will be available in early November 2013.
Weather Postponements: Outdoor programs are dependent on weather and will be postponed if conditions are excessively uncomfortable or dangerous.
