Camp Harbor View

On Wednesday at Camp Harbor View, the kids were eager to learn how to fish. Some of the kids love fishing and taught others how to cast and put bait on the hooks. Most of them had went fishing before and had a contest to see who would be the first one to catch a fish. On the dock all of us would joke around and have fun, but learn at the same time. I was surprised at how many crabs we caught with the crab trap. There were at least over fifteen crabs in the bucket. Some of the kids did not want to hold nor touch the crabs because of the pinchers. I would show them how to properly pick them up, and ask them which crabs were invasive. From the time that I had been there, the kids had more knowledge and were learning much more. They were even more excited about casting. I would try to be more fun by asking them who can cast the farthest. When someone was having problems casting,I would teach them the basics like knowing how to hold the rod so it won't go flying in the water. It was a pleasure to be with the kids at Camp Harbor View. They are always looking for something new and ready for exploring.
