Enroll now in a summer kids fishing camp and learn boat safety, fishing techniques and enjoy bass fishing on the Chain of Lakes in Winter Haven. This hands-on camp also includes education regarding fishing with different types of bait, seeing different animal species in their habitat and even stopping in the sandbar to take a swim and cool off.
The goals of the camp are to take each camper and improve their knowledge and their skills as they relate to freshwater fishing. The instructors make sure each camper improves their abilities whether they are a beginner or a veteran fisherman.

Camp Gilead is a year-round Christian Camp and Retreat Center that has served central Florida since 1938! We exist to glorify God by creating an atmosphere for individuals to evaluate their relationship with Christ and be challenged to make decisions resulting in changed lives.
It is a safe place filled with opportunities to be challenged both physically and spiritually while making lifelong friends. In fact, many return year after year because they cannot bear the thought of a summer without being a part of the action at camp, seeing their friends, and being spiritually refreshed.
Each child’s health and safety are top concerns. All activities are under the direction of trained Christian staff who live in cabins with campers. Trained first-aid personnel and certified lifeguards are also on duty.
