“My favorite moment was when my son caught a fish. An attendant (Reagan) was assigned to our boat and patiently instructed my son with what to do and what to notice with his fish bobber, this alerted him his line was hooked by a fish. This experience was priceless.” Parent of Participant, Joe Pool Lake


“It really opened my eyes to a world that is so much bigger than and how these kids can overcome things in their lives with the best personalities.” Shore Volunteer, Joe Pool Lake
