Welcome to Salty Anglers Fishing Camp in Ft. Lauderdale

Dates: June 10th – July 26th 2024
Locations: Hugh Taylor Birch State Park
Time: 8:30 A.M. – 3:30 P.M.

Welcome to the So. Florida’s premier Fishing camp for children ages 7 to 13!  Our mission is to create a program for youth with an interest and passion for fishing. Your young angler will receive hands-on, experiential lessons that will teach them new techniques in fishing, sportsmanship, and environmental conservation.

As with ALL Camp Live Oak programs, we are committed to providing a nurturing setting that will enhance a child’s self-worth, confidence, and a profound appreciation of nature.

Your child will be taught by experienced and passionate fishermen and women, who not only enjoy fishing but will also, integrate best fishing practices and policies into each session.  Twice weekly field trips will take your camper on a variety of fresh and saltwater adventures, including drift boat, pier and shore fishing, and many encounters with Mother Nature!

PLEASE NOTE, FOR SUMMER 2024, WE ARE ASKING PARENTS TO DROP OFF THEIR CHILD AT CERTAIN FT. LAUDERDALE FIELD TRIP LOCATIONS.  
2024 Fishing Field Trips Coming Soon!

After a morning of intensive fishing programs (except on field trip days), campers will join their fellow campers for afternoon fun camp activities such as sports, swimming, and paddle boarding.  This well-rounded program offers much in this 9:00 to 3:30 camp day!

This has been the first camp ever that my son didn’t complain about going in the morning, but he did tell me about the friends he made and the things he did. We love this camp!

We are really happy with Camp Live Oak and our daughter Georgia can’t wait for Winter Session!

Loved the fact that the camp worked with me and kept my son very active every day. He definitely wasn’t bored.
