Family Day at Swift Ponds

Swift Ponds
June 1st, 2024 
9:00am to 3:00pm
Event Details

A signature event for Outdoor Buddies has been our Family Day, which offers fun-filled activities for youth and adults. We are enhancing this event by offering Catch, Clean, and Cook fishing, as well as the previous BB gun marksmanship, bow and arrow shooting, and Trap shooting. Colorado Parks and Wildlife will stock catchable trout in Swift Ponds at the Colorado Youth Outdoors complex, where we have held our Family Day for several years. In addition, CPW experts will be available to teach fishing skills, and Outdoor Buddies will provide the expertise for cleaning and cooking the catch. As always, we will have great food, a chance to buy raffle tickets, and enter drawings for outdoor equipment. This event has something for everyone, so mark your calendars and make plans to join us!
