Bass Pro Donating Fishing Equipment To Kids Camp
Bass Pro Shops in Branson is donating fishing rods and reels to Kids Across America – a sports camp at Table Rock Lake that works with kids from urban areas.
The Branson store is donating the equipment as part of Gone Fishing -- a nationwide effort to get kids to put down their digital devices and go outside.
Other Bass Pro stores will donate rods and reels to other organizations in their areas, as well.
The rods and reels were donated by customers who turned them in for a discount on new fishing gear.
This weekend and next are also free fishing weekends at Bass Pro stores.
Kids are encouraged to come in and try their hand at fishing at the catch and release fish ponds set up at the stores.
If they catch a fish, they can get a "First Fish" certificate.
