“We loved it so much! It was a huge blessing to receive the equipment and the boat captains were so patient and motivated to teach the kids a new skill. My son loved fishing and felt real special receiving the plaque, he hung it up on his wall as soon as we got home! More events like this are needed!”

“Awesome program that helped my daughter realize what she could do, helped us as parents see what she could do, helped the volunteers see what she could do, helped those watching see what she could do. Profound success.”

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 7 – 17, the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing. Take to the water with C.A.S.T. for an unforgettable morning of fishing and boating!

CAST Covid-19 Event Policy and Procedures

The CAST for Kids Foundation will be holding all 2020 events in compliance with CDC, National, State and local guidelines for Covid-19.  We will be following these guidelines for the safety, health and well-being of our participants, families, volunteers and staff.  If we can hold an event according to state guidelines, as states phase in their re-opening, we will. However, our events may look different than they have in the past. Lunch and awards may be broken into separate groups to enhance social distancing. At a minimum, we will be implementing 6’ social distancing guidelines and the use of protective measures like masks and hand sanitizers.  We are confident we have figured out how to provide a safe, relaxing, fun environment for everyone to enjoy at CAST for Kids events in 2020! However, it will be impossible to guarantee the safety of all CAST participants and volunteers. Please consider each of your individual risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic when making your decision to attend any CAST event.

“Please keep up the great work guys and gals!  Such a beautiful event.  So happy and privileged to have been a part!” Boat Captain, Castaic Lake

“The event gave Kyle a fishing pole and tackle box. Because of this, Kyle’s dad took him to the fishing supply store  to get a few supplies. Kyle is so excited to go fishing again!  We will need help, but he has shown an interest to outdoor recreation, which is a huge change. We are so happy! – Participant Parent, Castaic Lake
