The Bullock County Annual Kid’s Fishing Derby promotes sense of community and team work among youth participants and mentors. Fishing activities provided teach children lessons in the fields of biology, zoology, chemistry and environmental science. They also learn responsibility, independence, respect for nature and living creatures and how their actions impact our society.
The fishing derby also teaches youth participants an appreciation for nature and skills required to fish. Through fishing, youth participants will also learn about morals, life lessons, and problem solving skills. Youth participants are able to build confidence and learn patience as well as physical and technical skills, including balance and coordination.
