“Seeing my son’s face on the boat! His eyes wide open! He is visually impaired, technically legally blind so it is rare to catch his eyes open so much. He is disabled, uses a wheelchair and multiple medical devices. It was his first time on a boat and his first-time fishing. He loved the boat, and he caught nineteen fish with mom and dad’s help. We loved it so much. Best day ever!” – Parent of Participant, Lake Monroe
“I enjoy seeing the kids’ faces coming back from fishing and then again after receiving their award. A very rewarding feeling.” – Shore Volunteer, Lake Monroe
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!
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 8:00 am and will end at 1:00pm. Please note a parent or guardian must be present with your child for the entirety of the event.
