On a private lake in Lecompton, Kansas

“This is the second year having the event here, and I can tell it’s beginning to become an event the families look forward to. My favorite is seeing how happy it makes my son and all the other kids that attend. It helps build confidence in him.” – Parent of Participant, Lone Oak

“Fishing with the kids and watching them receive their awards at the end was my favorite. I liked making a difference with the participants and helping them enjoy their day! Fantastic event! I will participate every year.” – Shore Volunteer, Lone Oak

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 6-21, 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!
