About Us

After specializing in youth fishing and kayak camps for the last 13 years, Virginia Outside, was excited to form 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.

We are currently offering Kayak fishing and touring day camps throughout Virginia in Richmond, Charlottesville, Virginia Beach, and Northern Virginia. Overnight kayak fishing camps are available on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries out of Urbana, Virginia, with additional private camp outings open in Southwest Virginia and in the Berkshires region of western Massachusetts. 

In 2017 we were especially excited to start offering programs at the ACA camp on Lake Sebago in NY. 

 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!

After starting Virginia Fishing Adventures summer camp in 2005, Tee Clarkson has spent the last nine summers guiding youngsters into countless fish, and more importantly many enjoyable days outside. 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.
