4-H Fish Camp will be held on May 2-3, 2020. The official program will begin at 10 Saturday morning and ends at 2 Sunday afternoon. The camp will be held rain or shine. 4-H Fish Camp is a weekend filled with fun and facts on fishing in Central Illinois. You'll learn about fishing and outdoor skills. Learn to catch largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, and channel catfish. Learn fishing tips, new lures, bait, equipment, knots, fish behavior, fish management, and fish cleaning. Each group registered will be assigned their own log cabin for lodging with single bunks. Participants must bring their own bedding and toiletries.

A fee of $50 per person covers the complete program, lodging, boat, bait, and three buffet meals, including Saturday lunch and supper and a Sunday brunch. You’ll also have fresh fish fillets to take home  too! Pre-registration and payment is required.  To register, contact 4-H Memorial Camp at (217) 762-2741 or send an email to Curt Sinclair at sinclair@illinois.edu.


Fish Camp is open to any adult/child "team" interested in learning more about fishing. Each adult may attend camp with up to three youth campers. An adult must attend the entire weekend event with the youth campers. It is recommended that youth campers be at least 8 years of age.
