The Cast ImageAway Club events are scheduled to held at the CCA Outdoor Education Center located at the Kid’s Fishing Lagoon from June through October.  To Register as a Volunteer Please Click Here.

This year to simplify the process we are requesting that you indicate your availability to volunteer through the summer. The dates that we need volunteers are Saturday, June 24 and July 22. An additional request for volunteers will be sent out in August for the fall sessions.

Parents and youth leaders agree spending time outdoors and learning about our island’s varied natural environment and our abundant fish and wildlife species is one of theImage great benefits of life on our island. CCA Skidaway’s Cast Away Club events provide hands-on nature education along with fishing experiences for our kids several times a year.

A key part of the success of CCA Skidaway events is the role volunteers play in making it a memorable day for every participant. We’re looking for volunteers to help out with our popular Youth, Nature, and Angling Program.

There are two volunteer opportunities:

 1. Fishing Buddies - As a Fishing Buddy you will help kids stay safe, bait hooks, land fish for youngsters when needed, untangle lines, and identify which kids need help and show them what they need to do to successfully catch fish.

2. Photographer -  As a photographer, you will take photos and short videos that record the event so that it can be shared on our website.Image

Volunteers should plan to arrive at the Kids' Lagoon around 8:15 a.m. for instructions, and you will be done around 11 a.m. Additional details will be provided to you before each Cast Away Event.

For more information, please contact Susie Fusco (sjbfusco@aol.com).
