Fishing pole in one hand, tackle box in the other and a big smiling face is what you saw all lined up to fish at Camp Sherwin. Bright and early at 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning, kids ages 3-15 came out to Camp Sherwin to participate in their 10th Annual Fishing Derby. This was a fun, free event for every member of the family.
The sun was shining high in the sky with over 115 kids forming a ring around the pond. This was the most successful turnout for the fishing derby, and the kids loved it!
The fish didn’t discriminate as kids of all ages caught fish of all sizes; ranging from 6.5 inches to 19.5 inches. The biggest fish was caught by 7 year old, Alexander Andrasy. All of the participants received a certificate, and those who caught fish each got a ribbon or trophy.
Prizes were given out to the biggest fish and most fish caught and divided up by age group. The winners were:

The Fishing Derby helps kids experience what it’s like to fish like real fishermen. They learn how to cast a line, build patience, and reel in a hungry fish. Families were full of smiles and laughter as kids caught their fish and smiled in pictures.
The Fishing Derby was a fun success that Camp Sherwin loves to have for the families in the community.
