“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!”
“The over all experience was great ! My kids had so much fun that they didn’t want to leave. Everyone was so nice & truly helpful. We look forward to the next event in our area! Never thought my kids would be able to experience something like this. Thank you so much!!”
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!
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.

2017 Event Recap
The 2017 Lake D’Arbonne C.A.S.T. for Kids event was a first time event coordinated by Brandon Jennings and his family. The event was a huge success and had a full field of 40 children and their families. The kids fished both on shore and on boats, but was mostly a shore event where most all of the kids were able to catch fish. At least 70 volunteers from the community were on hand to assist the kids and their families.
Everyone who attended had a great time and was very excited to host this event for some super special kids in their community! The D’Arbonne Point location with its level docks and lots of room was a perfect location for the event.
