“I saw firsthand that kids who otherwise had challenges with things like focus and concentration thrived with both when challenged with the prospect of catching a fish. I also saw kids getting over their fears right in front of me as they worked to understand the natural world.” – Shore Volunteer, Lake Washington


“My children were so excited to catch their first fish. Our Captain was so amazing. The children were so excited not only to catch fish but to drive the boat. This was such a magical day for our family, my son had no idea how amazing a day he would experience. You have provided lifetime memories and created interest around the water. The event is so very well organized and thought out, so many happy children and families. Thank you all who organized and volunteered.” – Parent of Participant, Lake Washington
