“It was just great to see so many kids with challenges coming out, trying their best and feeling excited about catching a fish! I thought the other volunteers were incredibly supportive and loving toward the kids, which is so important for the kids and the families.” Shore Volunteer- Saugatuck River
“On our way home from the event we stopped to by worms and went fishing at a pond near our house. It’s a been a wonderful activity to do together. We will be forever grateful for this experience!” Parent of Participant – Saugatuck River
This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with special needs, ages, 6- 18 the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing. Not all locations are conducive to hosting boating events. This event gives participants the opportunity to fish from shore.
The CAST for Kids Foundation will be holding all 2021 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 2021! 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.
