Fish & Explore takes campers to lakes, rivers and the Chesapeake Bay to catch fish, learn water safety and nature awareness, fresh and saltwater fishing basics (casting, rigging, knot tying, selecting tackle and lures and identifying fish). Campers wear life jackets when in the water or on a boat. All gear including bait, tackle, rods, reels, and life jackets is supplied.

Campers observe, catch, photograph and release frogs, toads, tadpoles, salamanders, lizards, turtles, crayfish, minnows and other small critters. Wear sneakers and bring lunch, snack, river shoes, change of clothes and towel.
