This year sees the return of the 3rd "Wyreside Lakes Carp Camp'' 

In the late 1990's and early noughties we annually held a junior carp championship which was then sponsored by Flightmasters holiday company. When entrants started to decline - probably due to the advancement of computer games - we found it increasingly difficult to continue with the competition. Now, happily, there seems to be a resurgence of young carp anglers which is essential to the sport and we feel as a family business that we should contribute to the advancement of young carpers and help them on their journey.

We are very proud to offer this camp alongside the weekend carp school which starts Saturday the 4th May with our resident tutor Malcolm Battersby. 

Our main tutors are fully qualified angling coaches who are also DBS checked and first aiders. Our team will also work along with a selection of our angling members who have kindly volunteered their time to spend on a one to one basis with the students over the weekend.

The carp school is not for profit. It is a chance for young anglers between 10 and 16 to access professional training and assistance from teachers who have years of experience and patience to help them achieve their goals.

The application form can be found here.  To enter please download / copy the app form and email to sally at

The successful applicants will be contacted by phone and they must have all of the essential equipment. The cost per angler (to cover expenses) is £45 which must be paid in full by July 30th 2019 and is non refundable.  

Each angler will will come away with a fishing goodie bag and food will be provided over the 48hrs. There will also be spot prizes given away over the weekend. For further details please contact our reception on 01524 792093.
