Rivercourse is a high quality camping experience for boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 15 years old and takes place in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains near Canton, N.C.
This pristine setting includes a section of the West Fork of the Pigeon River, which is privately owned and stocked with trout for the use of the camp.
Established in 2002, the Rivercourse Coldwater Conservation & Fly Fishing Youth Camp is sponsored by the North Carolina State Council of Trout Unlimited and emphasizes Trout Unlimited’s Mission – the conservation, restoration and preservation of coldwater fisheries and their watersheds – while teaching campers the basics of fly fishing, a sport for a lifetime.
Campers receive instruction from a staff of dedicated volunteers, including members of Trout Unlimited, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, the Forest Service and the U.S. Park Service in specialized areas such as herpetology (amphibians), geology, entomology (insects), botany, wetlands ecology, stream restoration techniques and environmental policy.
The Rivercourse 2018 camp will take place June 17th – 22nd, 2018.
