Take a Child Fishing

A father teaching his son to fish

There is nothing quite like seeing the smile on a young person's face when they catch a fish. There are some simple steps that can be taken to help children and parents or guardians enjoy these early fishing experiences:

  • Make the Fishing Trip About Them: It's easier to teach young children to fish if your attention is geared towards them and not towards your own fishing.
  • Keep Trips Short: An hour, possibly two, will be about all of the fishing they can handle for a day.
  • Bring Plenty of Snacks and Drinks: Even though most of these fishing trips will be short, they will get hungry and thirsty.
  • Equipment: Spin-cast reels (or push button reels) and shorter rods are good outfits for children. Bobbers (or floats) are good to use because children can see the bobber going down when a fish strikes. Worms are usually the bait of choice when fishing with children.
  • Let Them Help Make Choices: For example, you can pick out two spots that you think would be good spots for fishing and ask them which one of the two they think would be best.
  • Activities Other Than Fishing: Let them do things besides fish as long as it isn't interfering with the people fishing around you.

Author Gail Straub will read from her new book, THE ASHOKAN WAY (Homebound, March 2018), which chronicles a year's worth of walks near the Ashokan Reservoir, at the Catskill Interpretive Center on Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 pm. For the past 35 years, Straub has walked the Catskill Mountain Watershed almost daily, and grown to rely on the wild as a portal to self-understanding and spiritual restoration. The book is at once a lyrical form of devotion, a vital addition to the male-dominated catalog of nature writing, and a powerful call to recognize wilderness and unadulterated open space as key to our humanity, especially in divisive and tech-addled times like today.

In the days when Menla’s pristine land was owned by the Pathwork Center, an extensive web of trails allowed guests to experience the serenity and natural splendor of hiking all around our magical forest. With the help of intrepid volunteers over the past few years, we have fully restored most of the old trails on our property, and we are now working on expanding the network of trails to include brand new ones, in addition to doing light maintenance annually to keep the existing trails in good condition.

We need your help to do it, and this is a terrific opportunity to experience Menla for very little money and in a way that few people get to experience it! Spend 2-3 days out in the woods, experiencing the healing dimensions of the land, while getting great exercise and enjoying the company of others. With a chainsaw, loppers, snips, rakes, and our hands, you’ll be surprised how much we can accomplish in just one weekend! This important work benefits our many guests throughout the year and is very gratifying to be a part of.

Join some of the Menla staff for this special May weekend, as we explore our woods and further our trail restoration project.

Volunteers for this retreat must be in good enough physical condition to be out on the trails for much of the day. Please dress comfortably and bring adequate footwear.

We anticipate good weather, if light rain is expected, we will still proceed with this retreat. However, if heavy rain is expected, we may need to reschedule for a later weekend in May or June.

Join us at CFA’S Deer Exclosure Site to see what has grown in the forest after deer were excluded via an 8 foot fence three years ago. We installed the fence in the summer of 2015 with help from the New York Forest Owners Association (NYFOA). Since then, a plethora of vegetation has grown. Lets take a look together and continue the conversation on deer impacts within our forest.

For the first time inn over seven years, KlezKamp, a five-day immersion in traditional Yiddish music and dance, returns to the Catskills this summer.

Henry Sapoznik, camp founder and director, originally started KlezKamp in the 1980s after teachng banjo at an Ashokan Fiddle & Dance Camp.

Inspired, he decided to create a similar camp for traditional Yiddish music and dance. KlezKamp ran for over 30 years in a different Catskills location, offering music, dance, and deep cultural connection. Now, it returns to the Ashokan Center!

KlezKamp features instrumental and vocal music classes, dance tune forms (such as bulgars, zhoks, and shers), improvisational doinas, Yiddish vaudeville songs, folk dances, jams, lectures, and more!

Listen… and allow this listening to lead you into movement and a dance that opens your whole being and rouses your creative fire from the depths of peace.

If you long to meditate with movement and feel drawn to truly ground your spirituality in your body and gain practical tools for living a more energized, peaceful and lucidly creative life, this workshop is for you.
Guided by the teachings of Rumi, delve into grounding and centering techniques that awaken your body, re-connect you with the Earth and your core, so you can open your central channel, your heart and align with Spirit.

Journey into ancient and contemporary ceremonies from high energy movement to stillness and silence in preparation for Sama–deep listening with the heart.

This workshop demystifies turning, offering access to Sufi whirling meditation in a few simple steps. This method allows people of all experience levels to turn for a sustained period with ease. One enters the Sama, pure listening, and ‘is danced’. An age-old practice of the legendary Sufi masters Rumi and Shams, the Sama is an inner journey and a direct path to creativity. It dissolves mental chatter into the vast ocean of presence, and we begin to simply be…unchained, free, present, and wildly inspired.
