At our fishing camp, fun is the name of the game! If you’re looking for a fun, educational and social way to learn to fish, look no further than Get Schooled.
Whether you’ve never held a rod, or are looking to improve your skills, students benefit from our years of fishing and teaching experience to explore new opportunities.
Co-founders, Jon Shepro and Eric Mongirdas, have been teachers in Fairfield County for over 20 years, and Scott Morrison was a police officer in Fairfield County. Our mission is to provide a safe, fun, fishing experience on Long Island Sound as well as local lakes and rivers where students have the opportunity to develop social skills. Students have the opportunity to learn new skills such as tying knots, casting techniques, equipment care and more!
Most importantly, the kids can make new friends, have fun, and learn how to catch some fish. Through an exciting and entertaining curriculum, our goal is to provide individual attention from dedicated instructors that make this an unforgettable experience. If you’re interested in learning about fishing or spending more time down by the water come on and join us! All students receive Get Schooled swag!
