Youth Summer Camp

Illinois Trout Unlimited Youth Conservation and Fly Fishing Camp

The 10th edition of the Illinois Council of Trout Unlimited Youth Conservation and Fly Fishing camp is scheduled July 23-28, 2017 at the RAM Conference Center in Roscommon, Michigan.

The 2017 camp mission is to develop the next generation of cold water conservation advocates while also providing a rigorous introduction to the sport of fly fishing on the famed Au Sable River in Michigan.  An experienced Trout Unlimited mentor team will guide twelve 13- to 18-year-old participants through prime time morning and evening fishing sessions. Throughout the week, an abundance of “hands on” active learning opportunities will be conducted during the fully loaded mid-day periods.

The fly fishing instruction includes fly casting, fly tying, knots, basic entomology and what fish eat, reading the water, safe wading techniques, catch and release, and other outdoors and fly fishing related skills.
