North Oklahoma City Bassmasters and other volunteers bring fishing boats each year to Lake Texoma to take Camp Cavett children out for a half day in a fish-for-anything derby.

North Oklahoma City Bassmasters and other volunteers bring fishing boats each year to Lake Texoma to take Camp Cavett children out for a half day in a fish-for-anything derby. The derby is held during the week-long summer camp for kids from all over Oklahoma who are out-patients at Oklahoma Children's Hospital.

Volunteers with boats are needed to take kids with chronic and terminal illnesses for a day of fishing on July 13 during Camp Cavett at Lake Texoma.
Camp Cavett is the annual camp for patients at Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City. It was founded by Danny Cavett, the chaplain at the hospital.
The camp has existed since 2003 and a volunteer nursing staff attends to assist with the kids’ medical needs during the week.
Every year the kids are treated to a fishing trip and the camp always needs volunteers who have boats.
