The Program


The Academy is open to children 6–15 years of age.


All Students are to meet at Twin Maples, located at
63 Beach Avenue, 10 minutes prior to the start of their
session. Transportation from Twin Maples to the fishing
area will be provided by The Academy. Students should
wear beach attire. Sunscreen application prior to arriving at
Twin Maples is encouraged.

Proper Behavior

We want each child to have the best fishing experience
possible. Children should behave in a manner that does
not impede the learning experience of others.
