The Christ Church Detroit Fishing the River program
The Christ Church Detroit Fishing the River program is designed for kids 6 years and older, but all ages are welcome. There will be six sessions: one classroom, four fishing and one kitchen session. One or even two of the fishing dates may be cancelled because of bad weather. When we’re finished fishing we’ll celebrate with the Father’s Day Fish Fry where we’ll eat the fish we caught and cleaned!
Children must be accompanied by a parent or other adult family member. All fishing is done from the safely railed RiverWalk in Milliken State Park, immediately south of the church. This program has been designed for your child’s success by veteran fishers of the Detroit River who belong to Christ Church Detroit. Your child will catch fish.
Bring your own rods and reels if you have them or borrow them from us. There is no fee for this program. Here’s the schedule for Fishing: 5 Sessions: 1 Classroom + 3 Fishing + 1 Kitchen, and then… the Fish Fry!
