• “ My sons have participated in many fishing trips through you all. I wanted to let you know that the boys LOVED fishing today. They came home and raved about their time catching trout and sunfish. “
  • “Thanks for taking the kids out fishing on Columbus Day! Lily loved every minute! I never knew how much she would love the outdoors. She looks more forward to this than anything. She is already talking about wanting to canoe and kayak more!”
  • “I filled wanted to write a personal note to let you know just how much Brendan absolutely LOVED the fishing camp. They just had a blast at each different fishing site each day. I have recommended this camp to many friends who were just so excited to hear about it, that there is such an option. “
  • “My son thoroughly enjoyed himself at your camp this year! We will definitely be attending Fishing Day Camp, Kayaking Fishing, and probably a couple other V.O. camps next summer. Thanks a million!”
At Virginia Outside, we see our time on the water and outdoors as an opportunity for adventure. Learn proven fishing tactics along with canoeing skills and safety on public and private freshwater ponds and rivers.
Whether a seasoned angler or a true beginner, this camp is perfect for kids who want to wet a line and enjoy being outdoors on the water.
We fish a combination of public and private freshwater pond as well as local rivers. Safety is our number one priority, so all campers will wear life jackets when in the water or on a boat. We maintain a 1-to-5 counselor-to- camper ratio to ensure every camper gets some one on one time each day to advance his or her skills.

Scouts may also earn their fishing merit badge through this program.

Virginia Outside provides all bait and tackle, rods and reels, and life jackets.
No experience necessary.
