Summer Fishing Day Camps at Go Fish Education Center


The Go Fish Education Center is hosting four Fishing Day Camps this June and July. Limited space is available and pre-registration is required, so be sure to register soon!


Camps are designed for youth, age 7–15, who would like to get outside and learn the basics of fishing. Participating kids will learn how to fish, receive safety tips, casting instructions and how to clean your catch. They will also learn about fish biology, habitats and conservation—all through guided instruction, tours and educational activities.

•    Session 1 (deadline to register June 11): June 15–17; 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
•    Session 2 (deadline to register June 18): June 22–24; 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
•    Session 3 (deadline to register July 2): July 6–8; 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
•    Session 4 (This camp session is currently FULL): July 13–15; 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.

Cost for the camp is $100 (due on the first day of each session), which includes admission to the Go Fish Education Center, educational instruction, use of equipment and bait. Campers will need to bring their own lunch, snacks and a water bottle. Register for camp by e-mailing

How about a whole family trip to the Go Fish Education Center? From June 1 through August 29, the center will be open Wednesday through Saturday (9 a.m.– 5 p.m.) and Sunday (1–5 p.m.). What is there to see and do? Visit aquariums that hold more than 180,000 gallons of water and are loaded with Georgia freshwater fish and wildlife, including alligators. Try out the fishing and shooting simulators. See a working fish hatchery from our huge gallery window.
