    Little Fry Summer Camp

    Make a big splash during FISH’s Little Fry camp for preschoolers!

    Little Fry campers find out the answers to "Where do salmon live? And who lives near the salmon?" Campers will also explore the salmon hatchery and Issaquah Creek, create an animal track to take home, become a salmon, act like a bug, and sing the songs of water. This camp will encourage the joy of discovery and cultivate a sense of wonder in the environment and in salmon.
