For over a decade, Virginia Outside has provided youth across the state with countless experiences on the water and fishing stories to last a lifetime!  

A week with Virginia Outside offers campers the opportunity to explore the wide variety of freshwater fishing in both ponds and rivers around the Roanoke Valley. Safety is our number one priority and all campers will always wear life jackets when in the water or on a boat. Additionally, we maintain a 1:4 counselor-to-camper ratio.  Camps have limited spaces, so sign up early!

Business Review

We recently moved to VA.  Thrilled we found this program so that we could have help getting to know VA. Thank you for a great day of fishing. Counselor Zach could not have been more sincere about wanting to see the kids smile. We will be signing up for whatever is offered!  Jennifer A.
