Trout Camp is held at Rabun Gap Nacoochee School in the northeast corner of Georgia. The school is located across the road from the famous
Dillard House and not far from the equally famous Chattooga River. The cost of the program is $400 per person and includes food and lodging for the week.
Boys and girls ages 12 to 15 are eligible to participate and adult supervision is provided to ensure safety and a quality experience.
Trout Camp provides a comprehensive introduction to fly fishing by competent fly fishing instructors. Students have the opportunity to learn fly fishing
skills and to practice these in actual fishing conditions. Students also learn about entomology, fly tying and conservation. While the program is
comprehensive, there is time for fun and fellowship.
Students receive fly fishing equipment and a certificate of completion as part of their participation in Trout Camp. Trout Camp is sponsored by a
number of fly fishing organizations that generously donate fly fishing equipment to the students.
