C.A.S.T. for Kids Events

The C.A.S.T. “Catch A Special Thrill” for Kids Event was designed to create an adaptive environment where children, ages 5-18, and adults could both benefit, sharing a day of fun on the water that they may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience.  Participants are hosted at a local lake, or body of water, supplied with a fishing rod & reel, t-shirt, hat, and tackle box, partnered with an experienced volunteer angler and escorted onto a boat where, with the supervision of a parent or guardian, they are shown proper fishing techniques and receive natural resources education.  Participants and volunteers all then return from their morning fishing excursion to a BBQ lunch and an awards ceremony.

Goals

  • Expose children, who may not otherwise get the opportunity, to the sport of fishing and the enjoyment of the outdoors
  • Encourage continued participation in fishing by developing skills in the children along with their parents
  • Provide education and understanding to children about fish as a natural resource
  • Increase the awareness of all participants, parents, sportsmen, and volunteers, to the capabilities of children with disabilities, in effect strengthening local communities

At the C.A.S.T. Foundation, we do our best to gather photos from our events all around the country.  We have organized our photos by the location where each event happens. We hope that you enjoy these photos, and take some time to share your own.
