An update on COVID-19:
To our Daytrippers community,
The safety and well-being of our volunteers, teachers, students and community partners remain our top priority. As children across the country begin a new school year, the experience will be different from ever before. The impact of the global pandemic has created the need for agility in support programs and these extraordinary circumstances have reinforced Daytrippers' commitment to enabling enriching learning opportunities for children in need.
Given the ever-changing landscape, we've adapted our programming with the support of our volunteers and community partners.

WHAT WE DO
We raise funds for trips to recognized educational and cultural institutions for school groups in lower-income and far-reaching areas. Why? We believe that every student should have the opportunity to visit unique places of learning: from museums to art galleries to conservation areas and beyond.
UNLOCKING CHILDREN'S POTENTIAL THROUGH ENRICHING EXPERIENCES
With 100% volunteers and no paid salaries, approximately 97 cents out of every dollar raised goes directly to funding school trips. Although we are proud and passionate about our success, there's lots more to do.

Champion experiences for Canadian children that build confidence, curiosity, and bright futures.
Enable enriching learning opportunities for in-need children across Canada, by removing financial barriers of access to education and cultural experiences.
We believe that every student should have the opportunity to visit unique places of learning: from museums to art galleries to conservation areas and beyond. Every child deserves the right to learn about the world outside their classroom but not every school can afford to fund these trips.
We work with teachers and our partners to open doors and provide opportunities for children to unlock their full-potential by learning through experiences on school trips that children will remember for a lifetime.
OUR CORE VALUES
At Daytrippers Children's Charity, we align our efforts to achieve our vision and mission by focusing on our core values.
As a non-profit, we raise charitable donations that allow us to fund educational experiences outside of the traditional classroom environment. We rely on a mix of corporate and personal donations, secured through annual fundraising and sponsorships. We look to align our areas of focus to those populations most in need of financial support and seek to educate on opportunities within their local footprints.
Work with us to enable enriching learning opportunities for in-need children across Canada.
BATTLE OF THE BRAINS
Quoted as one of the funniest charity nights of the year, this interactive trivia contest with business and civic leaders across Canada is conducted over a gourmet meal, black tie, and cocktails.
