Trout Unlimited Camp

Applications will soon be available for the Tenth Annual Trout Unlimited Great Smoky Mountains 2020 Trout Adventure Camp for middle school-age girls and boys. The Tennessee Council of Trout Unlimited sponsors the program.
Summer Camp 2020 is designed to give kids an awareness, appreciation and understanding of the importance of our nation’s aquatic resources with an emphasis on conservation, protection and restoration of cold water ecosystems. Participants will learn about stream ecology, brook trout restoration, stream physics and water chemistry, fishing etiquette and aquatic entomology. They will fish with fly fishing pros, learn how to tie flies with fly tying experts; and they will enjoy many other activities including hiking, learning how to cast using a fly rod, and learn essential fly fishing knots. Swimming, basketball and other activities will also be available.
Financial assistance may be available through a camper’s area Trout Unlimited chapter—contact information for TU chapters in Tennessee is available on the Tennessee Council website, http://tctu.org/index.html.
