Camp Kids Age Limits – 5-15 years old. Kids will be separated while fishing 5-9 in one group and 10-12 in another group, and 13-15 in another group.
Maximum kids per week – 24
Camp Hours: Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm
Camp Dates: June 1 – August 28
Because many parents work 9am to 5pm and our camp ends each day at 4pm, We offer parents the option to pick their kids up as late as 6pm for a nominal fee of $10 per hour. During that two hour period your child will be watched by Ana or myself and they will have time to eat a hook n cook at Hooks (included in the $10 per hour price), swim in the pool located on property, play yard games, or watch fishing movies. The kids will have a blast during those two hours and will be well supervised.
Thank you Captain Joel and crew for creating such and awesome experience for our son Blake. He caught a bunch of fish and learned so much at camp. Blake is a shy kid and made some great friends this summer at camp. He can’t stop talking about what a blast he had and can’t wait to sign up for camp next year! We can’t express our gratitude enough and I recommend your camp to any child who loves to fish!Susan L.
Our boys go to bed and wake up with their fishing poles. They fish tournaments with their father during the year. They had a great time at your camp and caught fish they’ve always wanted to catch and never have until Ana Banana Camp. They caught cobia, shark, snook, redfish, trout, spanish mackerel, triple tail and grouper. They came home with bags of filets everyday and we had a big neiborhood fish fry. They will definately sign up for next years camp. Thanks for all you do!Brenda Mosley
We were a little nervous about sending our two girls and their cousin out fishing for a week. Three young girls fishing for an entire week. We were wondering on day one if they would be as enthusiastic on day two, three, four and five. To our surprise they all jumped out of bed each morning and couldn’t wait to get back to the boat. They all three loved Ana Banana Kids Fishing Camp. They would come home each evening with fishing stories. They not only talked about all the fish that they caught, they talked about seeing manatees, rays, dolphins and even saved a pelican caught up in fishing line. The patience and attention you showed these girls is very appeciated and they are recuiting some of their friends for next years camp. These girls love to fish and we thank you for teaching them so much this summer. Hats off to Capt. Joel and family!
The year before last we sent Dylan to another fishing camp. It seemed like he spent most of the week with a bunch of kids in a classroom. The instructor was nice, but tried to teach the kids how to fish on a chalkboard and they had a few speakers and captains come and talk to the kids about fishing. He got to actually fish around the docks and they took a bunch of kids out on a big boat on the last day and caught a few tiny fish. Dylan was in school all year and the last thing he wanted to do was spend another week in a classroom. Dylan loved Ana Banana Camp, because he got to go out on a boat everyday and catch a bunch of fish. He can’t stop talking about the huge fish he caught, especially the shark, he has the shark jaws hung up above his bed. Dylan wants to be a professional fisherman when he grows up and says when he gets bigger he wants to be a camp counselor at Ana Banana Kids Fishing Camp. Big difference between your camp and the first fishing camp. If you ever need us as a reference, I’d love to talk to any parent who wants to talk to another parent about your camp!
