Camp Alta Mons, located in Shawsville, VA, is a summer camp offered to 3rd graders through senior high school students. Meredith Simmons, Program Coordinator has reached out to our chapter of Trout Unlimited to offer a fly fishing experience for campers. There is a pond, access to the Roanoke River, and a creek at the camp site.
We will off casting, fishing, fly tying, and insect id to groups of middle and high school campers. All equipment will be provided. The session will last around 2 hours on July 10, 2018, the session will last from 9 am to 11:45am.
If you think that you are able to help, please contact Becky Hancock by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Several members have offered their time and we could always use more help. Becky will also have signup sheets at the Chapter’s May and June meetings.
This will be a great opportunity for TU members to reach out to the community and help youngsters connect with the stream environment and our passion for fly fishing. Your experience and expertise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for considering investing your time mentoring these youngsters.
