Camp Hosts Father/Son Fishing Retreat

CARNATION, Wash.—Fathers and sons­—along with grandfathers and grandsons, and uncles and nephews too—enjoyed a fishing retreat at Camp Gilead June 1 and 2. Event organizers also encouraged men to “adopt a son” to “share the fun with someone who might miss out.”

In anticipation of the retreat, the camp stocked its pond with a thousand trout and four 7 pound lunkers. With that amount, “you just can’t not catch fish,” the camp says. After fishing on their own during one of the three fishing derbies, the boys earned prizes for catching the heaviest fish and the longest fish.

In addition to fishing, the men and boys attended chapel services, with Tom Ruhlman, pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church, Shoreline, Washington, speaking.
