“I taught kindergarten for 30 years in public education. To see these kids who are typically stuck in a self-contained classroom get out and enjoy fishing then hearing cheers from the crowd was so touching. Several of us got choked up at some of their responses about the fish they caught.”  – Shore Volunteer, Indian Lake

“My daughter is Autistic, and her communication skills are different, however, everything and everybody she came across that day I saw a different light bulb come on. When she caught her first fish…her eyes lit-up! The event was Amazing. Every person involved, the lake, the participants!!! It was truly a Magical Day!!!!” – Parent of Participant, Indian Lake

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 6-18, 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!
