Fishing is a Favorite Outdoor Activity for Scouts
Fishing with Scouts is an outdoor activity providing Scouts with fun, skills development, family participation and strongly supports sound conservation awareness.  Fishing receives very little support by most councils yet has great opportunity with minimal investment. Most camps offer marginal fishing programs and poor instruction.  As a CAI you can make fishing a priority within your scouting world.
Who should attend?
The CAI course is for youth age 16+ and Scouters (volunteer & professional) who wish to lead Council, District and Unit fishing programs, fishing merit badge councilors and summer camp fishing instructors.
