“We really enjoyed the event and the opportunity. A great event for special needs children and their families! ” – Parent, Lake Tyler, TX

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!

CAST Covid-19 Event Policy and Procedures

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.

2018 Event Recap:

The 3rd annual Lake Tyler CAST for Kids was a super fun day for everyone involved.  The weather was perfect, sunny and calm winds.  The kids all caught a lot of fish, and enjoyed riding in boats around the lake.  The volunteers made this day extra special for some awesome kids!  Andy’s Custard provided ice cream, and that was a big hit with the kids!

2017 Event Recap:

We had a very blessed day at our second CAST for Kids event on Lake Tyler. We had kids who caught their first fish, and several who caught even more fish than they did last year! Thank you to everyone who participated, volunteered, and supported our event. We are excited to see what next year’s event holds!
