“My son has ASD and struggles holding conversations but LOVES to talk. He was so excited to meet so many new people and hang out for the day. He absolutely loved everything from start to finish! Everything was great. Captain Sam forever made a place in my kids heart and memories.” – Parent of Participant, St. Johns County


“My favorite part was the day after the event, when the dad of the child I was paired with texted me a picture of his son fishing a pond. He said he never had any interest in fishing until after the event. I can’t wait till the next event!” – Volunteer Boater, St. Johns County

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 6 – 20, 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!
