On June 5, your coffee can help make a difference in the lives of youth from disadvantaged circumstances across the country. On Tim Hortons Camp Day, restaurant owners of participating restaurants will donate 100% of proceeds from every brewed coffee purchased in Canada to Tim Hortons Foundation Camps. A leader in youth development programming, Tims Camps support youth from low income homes between the ages of 12 to 16 – an important developmental time that helps shape who they will become as adults. Through a multi-year, camp-based program, youth learn skills like leadership, resilience and responsibility, which empower them to believe in their own potential and change their stories for the better.
With seven camps in North America that run year-round Summer and School Programs, youth are supported to thrive when they return home, to excel in post-secondary education, to succeed at work and to contribute positively to their communities. Entirely supported by restaurant owners, guests, and sponsors, Tim Hortons Foundation Camps invest in youth in every community Tim Hortons serves.

- Attending Tim Hortons Foundation Camps comes at absolutely no cost to youth or their families
- One in five youth grow up in poverty and when they grow up in disadvantaged circumstances the chances of the cycle of poverty repeating increases and their ability to develop necessary skills to become successful adults decreases*
- Youth from low-income homes face additional obstacles when it comes to academic performance, relationship building and physical and emotional well-being*
- Youth from low-income homes are more likely to experience a wide variety of illnesses, hospital stays, accidents, mental health problems, lower school achievement and early drop-out, family violence and child abuse*
