Our Folsom Lake event is in Memory of Logan Schwab, an incredible young man whose passion for fishing will live on with the children at this event.

“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 5 – 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.

2018 Event Recap

The day started off breezy and chilly but by the time the kids were launching the wind had died down just a little and the sun came out to warm things up a bit. The kids were still all smiles and excited to be heading out on the water for some fun. While out on the water almost all of the kids either personally caught at least 1 fish or at least got to reel one in that their boater had hooked. The boats all returned by noon just in time for a BBQ lunch and the kids smiles now seemed to have turned permanent! The lunch was delicious thanks to the help from our Intel volunteers and BBQ master Luke Castillo. Plaques with pictures of the kids and their boater were handed out and then everybody went home with happy hearts!
