During the upcoming year we have scheduled two full weeks of fish camps, one in June at the Camp of the Cross partnering with the ND National Guard and in August a full week at Devils Lake partnering with the Devils Lake Parks and Rec. We also do smaller camps with Dakota Boys Ranch Minot/Bismarck, Boy and Girl Scout Jamboree events. We are also involved in several young kids programs, including some for disadvantaged children. These events are sponsored in cooperation with the Educational Department of the North Dakota Game and Fish.
The fish camp at Lake Sakakawea (Camp of The Cross, Garrison) is open to National Guard/Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch (click here for contact information)
The fish camp at Devils Lake (Lakewood Bible Camp, Devils Lake) is open enrollment. Contact Devils Lake Parks and Recreation for registration information (click here for contact information).
