The Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES) and Auburn University Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures Department are offering Fish Camp 2013! This camp will consist of five days of intense fun and hands-on activities blended into a creative learning experience that provides the broadest possible exposure to natural resources careers with an emphasis on aquaculture, fisheries, and aquatic ecology.
This camp involves a lot of field/outdoor activity and is a great opportunity to learn from Auburn's renowned fisheries, aquaculture, and aquatic ecology professionals.
The camp is open to high school students age 15-18. Due to the hands-on nature of the camp, participation will be limited to 20 students so register early! Students will have the opportunity to make their own lures, fish for a trophy size bass in the AU fisheries research ponds (a previous participant caught a 10 lb fish), kayak in the Coosa River, seine a fish pond, see flying carp, and much more.
Students will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Camp participants will have 24/7 counselor supervision.
