Operation of a summer camp for youth (12 to 15 years old) on the Bonaventure River

Recipient: Association des pêcheurs sportifs de la Bonaventure
Approved Amount: $2,200
Year Approved: 2015

Following a very positive first experience and the installation of permanent equipment, the Association des pêcheurs sportifs de la Bonaventure (APSB) will hold an annual summer camp for youth in mid-August in 2013, 2014 and 2016.  Over the winter, APSB will organize information sessions on the youth camp for students in the region (Matapédia, Carleton, Bonaventure et Paspébiac).  Over the years, we would like to offer this activity to all the youth of the Gaspé region and even of all of Québec.  The main goal of this project is to promote youth education through information and awareness on the importance of Atlantic salmon and its habitats through fly-fishing learning opportunities.
