Fly Fishing Adventure Camp

July 1 @ 9:00 am 2:00 pm

Area students are invited to join Buttonwood Nature Center, Home of The Institute at Orvis Hill Country in Fairfield, Pa. for a 2-day outdoor adventure camp—learn all about fly fishing, the art of fly-tying and so much more on the beautiful property of Orvis Hill Country.

The camp is part of Buttonwood’s series of DISCOVER programs for students in grades 5–12 (ages 10 to 17), and the program combines fly fishing with earth science, limnology and biology.

The camp runs for two days, Monday & Tuesday July 1 & 2, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. Three program rotations each day feature a variety of activities; a break for lunch is also part of the schedule.

With instruction by Orvis’s fishing experts, students will learn fly fishing essentials like rod rigging and essential knots, gear and tackle, stream entomology, fly selection, how to “read water,” and how to play, land, and safely release fish. 

The camp is open to students who have completed grades 5 through 12 (ages 10 to 17).

Register HERE.
