Catch A Special Thrill (C.A.S.T.) for Kids in a non-profit organization founded in 1991 to join volunteers who love to fish, with disabled and disadvantaged children for a day of fishing and fun. C.A.S.T. for Kids Events are designed to create an opportunity whereby children, ages 6 – 18, and adults can both benefit, sharing a day of fun on the water in a Least Restrictive Environment where children of all means can find success in an outdoor activity.
Young anglers are hosted at a local site and supplied with fishing rods & reels, a t-shirt, hat, and tackle box. Partnered with an experienced volunteer angler and accompanied by a parent or caretaker, participants are escorted on to a motorized boat and spend a morning on the water where they are shown proper techniques of fishing and educated on boating safety and natural resources.
