June 25 Lake Chickamauga

Dayton Boat Dock – Point Park, 185 Chickamauga Drive, Dayton, Tenn.

July 31 Mississippi River (La Crosse)

Veterans Freedom Park, 1 Clinton St., La Crosse, Wis.

Aug. 25 St. Lawrence River

Massena Intake Boat Launch, 1415 State Hwy. 131, Massena, N.Y.

Each camp will be held in conjunction with a Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit event and will provide valuable instruction from top pros and industry executives for students, coaches and boat captains.

Participants will check in on site and receive a free camp t-shirt, free product from participating sponsors and a free lakeside cookout. Campers will have time to practice their newfound skills with some fishing from the bank and will be invited to help mentor grade-school children during an FLW Foundation Unified Fishing Derby held at the same location. Each of the first two camps will conclude at the start of the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit weigh-in with participating campers recognized on the popular FLW LIVE webcast. The third camp will be held at the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit TITLE championship with camp integrated into opening-day festivities. FLW is hosting these exciting new camps to help encourage high school anglers throughout the country to pursue their passion for fishing.

Registration for the minicamps is now open. To sign up for each camp, or for more information – including camp schedules – visit FLWFishing.com/camp.
