In 2004 the first FAMILY FISH CAMP(FFC) was conducted to get kids and parents together outdoors. Today, FishingsFuture.Org is more committed to achieving this goal than ever before. After 10 years of conducting FAMILY FISH CAMPs (FFCs) and witnessing the profound changes in families, behaviors and environmental responsibility, through unique concepts like; parental inclusion, Leave-No-Trace philosophy, and environmental stewardship, Fishing's Future is growing and gaining national recognition. In 2007, Fishing’s Future was granted 501 c(3) non-profit status, and began an ambitious national initiative to draw children ages 6-16 and their families outdoors - to show them what they have been missing, and at the same time create bonds between children, parents and our natural environment.

Fishing's Future conducts FAMILY FISH CAMPs and other angling outreach events sharing the joys of fishing to new communities and families in all areas. A FAMILY FISH CAMP is a full day of education, fun, and excitement where Jr. Anglers and their parents learn the skills, knots, methods, rules, and techniques necessary to fish independently and then immediately apply those newly learned skills fishing during the last part of the FAMILY FISH CAMP. Fishing’s Future also conducts Family Fly Fishing Camps (FFFCs), Family Kayaking Camps (FKCs) and holds many other angling outreach events.

Fishing’s Future, now entering its eighth year as a 501 c3 corporation, will keep its sights set on the original initiative of changing the recreational habits of millions of kids and families across America – city by city, region by region, state by state.
