Fishing Camp

Spend your summer days fishing for a feast. Visit the fantastic waterways of the Bay Area and beyond. Learn to cast and care for reel, rod and fishing gear. Sit by the shore and enjoy the summer sun and, if you master the secrets of stillness and silence, cook your catch over an open fire.

The Trackers Fishing Experience

Trackers fishing camps represent years of experience taking kids fishing. Our Mariners Guild knows the best locations and what works for kids. Our guidelines for safety around water, fishing tackle and shorelines have no equal. Campers also experience Bay Fishing, learning how to use crab pots for as crabbing.

Finally, every camper gets a chance to learn with reel and rod fishing tackle while they also craft their own "Huck Finn" style bamboo pole to take home.

Please Note Like all great fishing trips sometimes we catch a-lot of fish, sometimes we catch nothing. Yet we always have a tall tale to tell. If we do catch a fish this often means eating them in an open fire feast. This is NOT a catch and release camp. We encourage them to gut, clean and eat the fish they catch. At Trackers we feel understanding this cycle of life is a healthy process. We recommend you preface it with your child in the manner best suited for your family and its values.

Our Philosophy for Learning & Living

A Smile

We help children to feel like that group of kids wandering country backyards 50 years ago: independent, tired, muddy, wet and happy from the woods and wild. We are acutely aware of full and real hazards of the out of doors after years of working in environmental education. We try to move away from the highly structured and limiting tolerances of conventional environmental education while keeping kids truly safe but not encapsulated from, or phobic of nature. We are deep patriots to the value of offering guided yet very free and transparent experiences for kids. We believe it is okay to be thirsty at times, cold at times, and wet at times. It builds empathy and care for the gifts of life. It fosters adventure and sincere accomplishment. We also believe it is critical to feel supported and cared for as they truly explore their passion and responsibility. And through a healthy life immersed in nature, they test the limits and great potential of the often untapped physical and emotional resiliency they possess
