“The C.A.S.T. for Kids event at O’Neill Forebay was some of the greatest times I have had. I don’t know who got more out of it, us or the kids!” – Volunteer Boater, O’Neill Forebay

 

“Our son overcame them all (limitations). Once he was shown what to do, he started doing it on his own. He did an awesome job!” – Participant Parent, O’Neill Forebay

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 7 – 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!

Event Itinerary

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 8:30 am and will end at 1:00 pm.  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 5-6 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!
