” This event was beyond amazing. Everybody that participated was recognized and praised in every single way. NO ugly faces were made or ugly comments, it was an autism friendly environment which made it so much easier and more fun for our son to participate in. The volunteers were all amazing and so friendly. We had a blast and so did our son. We look forward to more events like this one. Thank you so much for this event” – Parent of Participant, Lake Corpus Christi

“It was amazing seeing so many people give their time and effort for the children. To celebrate the children who are not always included and who are not always capable of winning. It will be something that I remember for the rest of my life.” – Shore Volunteer, Lake Corpus Christi

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with special needs, ages 6-18, the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing. Not all locations are conducive to hosting boating events. This event gives participants the opportunity to fish from shore.

Event Itinerary

Our C.A.S.T. for Kids events include lots of fun and celebration! You can expect 2-3 hours of fishing, a delicious lunch and an awards celebration where your child will receive a personalized plaque. The event will start at 8:00am and will end at 12:00pm.  Please note a parent or guardian must be present with your child for the entirety of the event. If you are volunteering for this event, you should expect about 5-6 hours of time at event, arriving before participants, and staying after to help wrap things up. This is a day of fishing the children, families, and volunteers will never forget!
