April 23, 2017 @ 1:00 pm PDT
When: Sunday, April 23, 2017
Where: Gardom Lake, regional park
What: We’ll meet with Jason Webster, a local aFISHionado, who will teach us all about fishing – how to tie knots with fishing line, how to bait a hook, how to cast a line and most importantly, what to do when we catch a fish! We’ll learn what type of fish are in the lake this time of year.
Please note: we will be fishing from a dock. If you feel your child will need a life jacket, please bring your own. We also ask that all families bring a rod if they have one. Jason will be bringing 4 extra rods and bait/hooks for all the children. If you have your own bobbers or tackle you would like to bring, please pack them as well.
Explorer Day Etiquette:
- Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
- Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
- Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
- Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
- Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
- Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
