Family Fishing and Camping Weekend
- Time & Place
Registration will open April 13 and will close on June 3 or when sold out.
This event is open to guests. As a participating member, feel free to bring along additional family and friends.
Our most popular event—a once-a-year opportunity for members to fish in our three-acre-lake!
As the museum is closing and everyone else is going home, stick around to enjoy an evening of fishing, fellowship, and picnicking in the gardens. Additional activities available include visiting the Petting Zoo (which will stay open late on Saturday) and playing volleyball with new friends.
Spend the night camped out in a field next to the Botanical Gardens. Clean restrooms and showers will be available. Spend some more time fishing on Sunday morning, then join us for a special devotional service led by one of AiG’s popular speakers.
