About Us

After specializing in youth fishing and kayak camps for the last 11 years, Virginia Outside, is excited to be forming a partnership with the American Canoe Association beginning in the summer of 2016 to broaden our reach of kayak fishing camps under the name, Paddle Fish.

Kayak fishing and touring day camps will be available in Richmond, Charlottesville, and Northern Virginia. Overnight kayak fishing camps will be available on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries out of Urbana, Virginia, and finally a highlight of the summer will certainly be a trip to fish the Berkshires area of Western Massachusetts.

Whether at a day or an overnight program, campers will spend the week learning safety, paddling, and fishing skills from certified ACA instructors and expert anglers.

Campers will come away with the skills to be lifelong paddlers and anglers.

Of course, most importantly, they will have fun!

Virginia Outside seemed a natural progression based on his love of the James River Park and desire for children to have the opportunity to spend quality time outdoors.
