What Is Catch – A – Dream Foundation?

OAC is a proud supporter of Catch A Dream Foundation and encourage you to visit their website and make a donation by clicking –> DONATE if it is within your means. Here is some information directly from the CADF website in order to explain more about their Mission and Vision.

Mission

Catch-A-Dream is a national, charitable, non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation, that provides once-in-a-lifetime dream hunting and fishing trips to children across the United States and Canada, age 18 and younger, who suffer from life-threatening illnesses. (purpose) Through these adventures, and exposure to outdoors-minded people who care, (business) the program instills in these children a message of encouragement at a time when they need to know that hope does, indeed, exist. (values)

Vision

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

It is this very message of hope, as promised in Isaiah 40:31, that we seek to instill in these children and their families. We use hunting and fishing as opportune tools to expose them to the “..wonders of God…” that await them in “The High Country,” as they spend time in the outdoors, away from the bleak and sterile world of medical facilities, treatments, and hospital gowns, but in the presence of The Creator who is the Author of real hope.

On each trip, the children and the family members who accompany them, are surrounded by outdoors-minded people who understand that We-Can-Change-Someone's-Whole-World-for-at-least-a-Short-Periodthese children are often “…sick and tired of being sick and tired!” A designated Catch-A-Dream host accompanies each family and, together with outfitters and local volunteers, facilitate their dream experience, love and nurture them through the strong personal relationships that inevitably are forged in the lodge, on the stream or in the woods. Hosts and volunteers often become their best friends, and remain a part of their families long after the dream trip has concluded. As one volunteer eloquently stated, “We can’t change the whole world; but we can change someone’s whole world for at least a short period!” Many parents have confirmed that the mission is consistently accomplished!

16.6 One Shot One Chance Shooting Challenge Starts Today

The last shooting challenge before many of our 2016 hunting season begin will be 5 separate videos at 5 separate distances. All rules on distance verification remain the same. The only think is you get one shot and one chance to make it count.  The idea for this challenge was not just to test your confidence and ability to step up to the plate but also paralells the concept behind Catch – A – Dream Foundation that provides hunting and outdoor opportunities for kids with terminal illness. The kids may only have that One Shot or One Chance to get the hunt of a lifetime and the foundation needs your help to make sure they can continue to provide these opportunities for kids just like yours or mine.
