Pontoon Program

“We LOVED the boat trip today! It was definitely a highlight of the summer that we’ll remember for a very long time. To see my child feel so safe and happy on the boat was wonderful. I can’t think of how we would have such an adventure without Starlight; we are so grateful!” – Ayme, Starlight mom

Starlight Children’s Foundation® Canada’s Pontoon Program aims to bring joy, comfort, and relief into the hearts of families with seriously ill children. This summer-long program, guided by experienced boat captains, offers Starlight families the chance to enjoy peaceful pontoon rides along serene waters, providing much-needed relaxation under the sun.

Amidst countless hospital visits and constant medical worries, finding moments of stillness can be difficult for Starlight families. Our Pontoon Program is designed to fit around medical appointments, offering a precious opportunity to unwind and escape the daily stresses of their lives in a calm and joyful environment.

Starlight Canada’s Pontoon Program is more than just a boat ride; it’s a chance for sick kids and their loved ones to find peace, reconnect as a family, and create lasting memories together. With each ride on the water, we are creating moments of laughter and relaxation, reminding these families that despite the challenges, there are beautiful, peaceful moments to be cherished.
