For many, summer is a time for relaxing, meditating on life and the future, and simply enjoying the inevitable long days and warm evenings. For others, summer is twelve weeks packed with vacations, sports and other planned activities. Kids in summer camp can often feel slightly overwhelmed with the amount of activity that fills each and every day. Good camps will very often have rest times and leisure activities that help to balance out the packed schedule.

As leisure activities go, fishing can be one of the most enjoyable and rewarding. It allows an individual to sit quietly and focus on the day's events. It can be a great way to appreciate natural surroundings and allow the mind to clear. Fishing can be done alone or with a group of friends, which is often a wonderful way to bond.

Fishing Alternatives

Fishing does not always involve a local lake or pond, however. For the more adventurous, there is the option of deep sea fishing. Deep sea fishing involves taking a boat out into the deep ocean, and the salt water fish caught during these types of adventures are generally quite large and require professional help to reel in. Many of the deep sea fishing boats that offer fishing adventures will help individuals to clean their catches so that they can be enjoyed as food.

Many camps near the ocean offer day trips that include deep sea fishing. It can be a great way to break the normal routine as well as give many children an opportunity that they may never have again. As an added bonus, if the campers are good fishermen (or women), the camp may be able to have an old-fashioned fish dinner!
