“My 7-year-old daughter caught her first fish! It gave her confidence. We loved this event and can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful opportunity! We can’t wait to go fishing with her new rod. Thank you!” – Parent of Participant

“My favorite moments were seeing the excitement of the kids as they caught fish and then afterward when they talked about their experience. I felt like I was a small part of making a difference in these kids’ lives by helping them have a first-time fishing experience.” – Shore Volunteer

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 6-18, 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!
