Lake Champlain Camp
Candlewood Fishing Camp on Lake Champlain is the ultimate fishing experience for young anglers and outdoor enthusiasts. Campers will fish for world class-sized smallmouth and largemouth bass with the top area fishing guides and tournament anglers. Lake Champlain is regarded as the best bass fishing lake in the world! Repeatedly ranked in Bassmaster Magazine’s Top Lakes to Fish for Bass in the Country and is a favorite destination among both recreational and tournament fisherman. Campers will learn how to implement the best techniques to target various species with a primary focus on post-spawn bass while fishing on state-of-the-art fishing boats. Anglers will leave camp proficient in: topwater’s, spinnerbaits, plastics, pitching a flipping grass, drop shotting, and dock fishing.
Campers will also learn to target the other gamefish species that inhabit the lake including crappie, perch, and trout. In the spirit of competitive fishing, they will engage in week-long tournaments that will recognize winners in the categories of biggest bass, most species caught, total weight, and more.
Other activities at this camp are basketball, tennis, swimming, team-building activities, and more. There is a strong emphasis on boating safety, sun protection, ethical catch-and-release practices, and building life-long friendships.
Campers will stay at the Marine Village Cottages in Plattsburgh NY. Campers will stay in comfortable cabins with private bathroom and shower right on Lake Champlain!
