Teen Expeditions

The Expeditions are typically longer than our Adventures and combine some more strenuous hiking and/or more difficult fishing, but the rewards could be once in a lifetime fish in once in a lifetime locations. These expeditions are perfect for participants with fly fishing experience or first-timers ready to challenge themselves.

Participants should be prepared to face more pressured fish on some of America’s most famous water, challenging hikes that will bring you deep into the backcountry, or windy days on a saltwater flat. At camp, your trip leaders will be depending on you to be a strong and positive contribution to your group.

Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions was started in 2010 as a graduate thesis for my Master's Degree in Environmental Conservation Education at NYU. The operating premise was simple - by coupling amazing wilderness fly fishing camps for teens with environmental education and service learning we can help inspire future generations of fly fishing conservationists. We have been growing our unique list of trips and experiences ever since.

When it comes to choosing a summer program for your teen the options are endless. For the teen who loves to fish, be outside, and has a strong sense of adventure we have made the choice easy. We are the leader in teen fly fishing adventures and are dedicated to providing the best backcountry fly fishing experience with opportunities for teens to engage in leadership training, community service, and backcountry camping.
