New Fairfield Summer Camps
New Fairfield summer camps can be a great experience for your child. Candlewood fishing camps offers the best bass fishing experience for young anglers 9-16 years old. The camp offers three separate weekly overnight sessions to choose from. Each sessions runs for 6 days and 5 nights from Sunday to Saturday.
Campers will spend 6 days and 5 nights on the shores of beautiful Candlewood lake. The camp sits on 100 acres of woodlands and directly on the water. Campers sleep in comfortable rustic cabins a short walk away from the boat docks. A typical day at camp starts at 6:00 am for breakfast. After breakfast the campers head down to the water to meet their fishing guides. They will fish for 4 hours before coming back for lunch. After lunch, they spend the afternoon swimming, canoeing, kayaking and fishing from shore. After dinner campers head back down to the water and fish until dark. We wrap up the day with a camp fire and fishing stories with lights out at 10:00
