TU River Camp Accepting Applications for 2019

The Cumberland Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited will be holding the 25th annual Rivers Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth Camp from June 16-21, 2019. The camp will again be held at Messiah College in Grantham, PA. 

Admission will be limited to 32 selected qualified students, ages 14 to 17. The applicants must have been born between June 21, 2001, and June 16, 2005. The 32 students will be selected through an application process where they must state why they want to attend camp and obtain a support letter from a school science teacher or guidance counselor. A student doesn’t have to be an accomplished fly fisher or a budding aquatic biologist to attend. The student only needs to be highly motivated and willing to learn.

The camp tuition is $550 per student which includes all meals and accommodations. Doc Fritchey TU will pick up the cost for two students from either Dauphin or Lebanon County. Applications must be received no later than March 31, 2019. For more information, a camp brochure, or to apply, visit the camp website at www.riverscamp.com. Be sure to watch the camp video there.
