Join us for the 2020 Camp Fish Tales’ Fish Races

We are postponing our CFT fish races fundraiser on March 20th. We will be getting back with you on a new date in the near future. If you are not able to make it (once the new date is announced), let us know if you would like your money refunded. You are more than welcome to display your decorated fish at your place of business until the event or drop it off at Ieuter Insurance Group. You can either bring your fish the night of the fish races or we will bring it for you.

To put a positive spin on things, we would LOVE it if you would take a picture of your decorated fish and tag us on social media! Thank you for everything you do to support camp. We couldn’t do it without you.
Stay healthy.

First Fish Races Fundraiser a Success!

Camp Fish Tales hosted its First Annual Fish Races on Saturday, March 10th. Wooden fish, made and donated by the carpentry students from the Greater Michigan Construction Academy, were sponsored by local businesses and individuals. We had some very creative fish this year!
This year’s event was attended by over 100 individuals. Kevin Kendrick was our emcee and track announcer for the evening. The races raised over $9,000 to support the programs and scholarships that we provide to individuals with disabilities.
Honors for this year’s event include; Best Dressed Fish Winner, Vicky Jezweski & Natalie Herber “Chasing the Captain” and Fastest Fish Winner, Forshee Friends & Family “Hook-it”.
A huge thank you to everyone that attended! What an energetic crowd we had! Thank you for all your continued support and a big thanks to everyone that sponsored a fish, made a donation and attended. You truly made our event exciting and fun! We couldn’t do it without you!
