“Pure innocent joy taking a child fishing in a boat for their first time and the happiness they experienced during the day is priceless!” Volunteer Boater
This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, minimum age of 6 years old, 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 7:45am and will end at 1:30pm. 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 6-7 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!
