Bozeman Day Camp

Bozeman Day Camp

Finally! A Day Camp for kids who love to fish!

Campers meet in Four Corners Monday through Friday at 8:45 a.m. so we can load up the van and hit the road by 9 a.m. After a short drive to one of the area's world-class trout fisheries, we will spend the day on the water, fishing, learning, exploring, and having fun before returning to Four Corners for pickup at 4:30 p.m. Each day, campers will explore a different section of the river. This progression will help campers catch lots of fish while they build their skills in preparation for the Friday float fishing trip on the Madison or Yellowstone River. With three campers per boat, they will take turns putting all they've learned to use on what could be the greatest day of day camp ever (we may not be able to verify that claim, but we are pretty sure that anyone who fly fishes would agree).
Sorry, parents, kids only.

Back to Basics

Work with your guides to learn new skills or perfect old ones as we catch our first fish of the week on the Gallatin River.


Yellowstone National Park Day

Yellowstone is full of great fishing. Some of our favorites are the lesser-known smaller streams loaded with eager trout. Bring some shoes you can walk and get wet in as we spend the day exploring some of our favorite small Gallatin tributaries.


Big River Fun

We will spend the morning learning to safely wade and fish on the lower section of the Madison River. When temps start to climb we will break out the tubes for a little afternoon cool down.


Big Fish Time

The Upper Madison is famous for big fish, but they don’t come easy. After sampling some of the aquatic insects during a fun entomology lesson and learning about conservation as we test water quality in the Madison River watershed, we will practice some more advanced nymphing techniques on the upper Madison. 


Float Fish Day

With three campers per raft, we will take turns fishing as we float down the Madison or Yellowstone River.

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.
