If creating a new account, you will receive two confirmation emails, one from FYCCN and one from our volunteer team. Please only use the one sent by FYCCN to complete your camper’s registration – the volunteer team link is not operational at this time.

After February 1st, once you have registered your child for a specific program, a camp staff member will contact you with further information and payment instructions. As always, summer camp is filled on a first-come, first-served basis.


Fish Camp is all about fishing. Topics will include tackle assembly and use, knot tying, casting, and angling techniques. While most of the day will be spent fishing, campers will learn valuable information about fish identification, fish feeding preferences, tackle selection, fish handling, and fish cleaning. Boating safety, oaring, trolling motor operation and boat fishing techniques will be covered. Campers are provided with all gear necessary for fishing. Each participant will receive a rod and reel, and each camper will be given a tackle box full of tackle. Please do not bring additional fishing equipment from home. At the close of Camp, campers take their fishing equipment home to use for future fishing. Our goal is to have participants leave camp equipped to be successful anglers.
