Fishing Academy for summer of 2020 is Cancelled Due to The Coronavirus!!!
It is with great sadness I have to announce that The Fishing Academy program for the 2020 season has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus and concerns about the spread of Covid-19. We cannot at this time compromise the safety of our staff and your children, who are the heart and soul of the program. Several of the new regulations make it impossible to operate, despite new protocols we were in the process of implementing!
You should have received an email with options concerning the cancellation. Thanks for understanding John Hoffman, Director, TFA
Message from our Founder
I would like to welcome and thank you for coming to our page and learning more about our charity organization, The Fishing Academy. When I first founded the charity in March of 2004, I wasn't even sure how an outdoor fishing program would be received, all I knew is I wanted to teach kids about a sport I loved that kept me out of trouble when I was a teenager.
Now heading into our 15th year, we have taken over 6,500 youth off the streets and into the great outdoors. We have added Veterans programs, taking out those who bravely served our country and bringing them to a relaxing environment. We focus on Youth Development and have provided over 40 former participants with their first employment opportunity.
The Fishing Academy has had an overwhelming response from people in the community, parents, teachers, friends and supporters. We hope you can get involved and help kids develop into future leaders of their communities, so that someday they will create positive opportunities for the next generation!
