Family Fishing and Camping

June 6-7, 2015

Our most popular event returns—an annual 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 include visiting the Petting Zoo (open extended hours) and playing volleyball with new friends.

Camping Option

Spend the night camped out in a field next to the Botanical Gardens. Clean restrooms and showers will be available. On Sunday morning we’ll finish up with a special devotional service led by one of AiG’s popular speakers.

Event Itinerary


• Fishing must take place from the boardwalk, gazebo, dock, or one of the bridges; fishing from the bank is not permitted.
• Please be mindful of others around you when casting.
• Children must be accompanied by an adult

Please note that no food, fishing equipment, or camping equipment will be provided by the museum. Camping equipment must be carried from the parking lot to the camping field. Participants (or legal guardians) will be required to sign a liability waiver.



Registration is required and is currently open. There is no charge to attend, and fishing licenses are not required. Space is limited, so register early to reserve your spot.

This event is open to guests. As a participating member, feel free to bring along additional family and friends.
