Medford Recreation in partnership with Belmont Recreation and Mass Wild Life will be running an Adaptive Fishing Program at Wright’s Pond. During this one-day program children will have the opportunity to learn how to fish in an adaptive setting. On-site will be 2 professional staff as well as volunteers from the community.
Do to limited capacity each participant will be allowed ONLY 1 parent/ chaperon to attend the event with them.
This is a great opportunity for parents to connect with one another and further build their own community of supports and connections and to share ideas on programs we can further build to support our disabled youth. From forming lasting friendships through parent and caregiver connections our goal is to build and support our diverse and vibrant community through adaptive and inclusive recreation programs.
Upon registration we will reach out to you to discuss your child's specific needs, and ensure that we have appropriate accommodations to make this not only fun for all, but to ensure the safest and most compassionate environment for Medford's disabled youth.
**Fish caught, will be returned to Wright's Pond
IMPORTANT: If you are attending this event and are over the age of 18, you need a fishing license to fish. If you come and help your child(ren) fish, you do not need a license. But the moment you take the rod and cast out in to the water, a license is required. You can purchase online at,
