Have Fun Do Good is a group travel company that gives back. We plan group trips around the United States with an emphasis on exploring the great outdoors, and each trip includes a local volunteer activity.

Each Trip has a unique itinerary, but Trips will include the following:
- Welcome dinner
- Farewell dinner
- Some breakfasts
- Some lunches
- One volunteer activity
- One guided hike
- One additional outdoor activity
- One surprise activity!
· Recommendations for additional ways to explore during your free time
· All transportation within the destination
· 24/7 traveler support on your trip
· Peace of Mind Refund Assurance (available as an add-on when booking)
· Flights to and from the destination (we’ll tell you when you should book your flights!)
· Transportation to/from the airport to the meeting/ending location
· Some meals
· Free time activities
· Snacks + water
We recommend travelers plan to spend $200-$300 for additional meals and independent activities.
Our only age requirement is that you're over 21. Our intended traveler age is listed on each trip, and most of our travelers are between 25-39 years old. In the future, we will be launching trips intended for different age ranges - stay tuned! Those trips will be exactly the same - just different age groups.
Why the age ranges? For group travel, we find that having travelers in similar stages of life makes for a better experience for everyone.
Yes! We encourage it. Over 65% of our participants are solo travelers. This is a great way to meet new people and make friends.
Absolutely! When you’re signing up you can request a specific roommate so you can share a room with your friend or partner.
Most of our trips are quite active. While you certainly don't need to 'train' for a trip, we encourage you to feel comfortable walking around 5 miles.
We believe that travel and spending time outdoors is for everyone, and trips can be accessible for travelers who use wheelchairs. When signing up for your trip, be sure to indicate any specific needs, and our team may reach out to you to get more details if needed.
With the outdoor nature of our experiences, we recommend travelers who use wheelchairs consider bringing an all-terrain wheelchair. We’ll be sure to select group experiences where you can comfortably and safely participate.
You’ll hear from us a few times before your trip. We’ll reach out one month prior to departure, two weeks prior to departure, one week, and one day before your trip with everything you need - a packing list, important reminders, and more! If you have any questions in the meantime, you can always send us an email: email@example.com.
When a trip has sold out, you can be added to the waitlist in case someone cancels and a spot opens up! No payment is necessary - we just need to know how to contact you. If a spot opens up, you will have 48 hours to respond before we open it up to the next person on the waitlist. Once a payment is made for your trip, your spot is confirmed!
Our full cancellation and postponement policy can be found here. Please call (412) 218-0009 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need to cancel your trip.
When booking your trip, you’ll have the option to purchase Peace of Mind Refund Assurance, which allows you to change your trip dates or cancel your trip for any reason, up until the day of your departure to receive a guaranteed refund: 100% if your Trip is 8+ weeks away, 80% if your Trip is 4-8 weeks away, and 60% if your Trip is within 4 weeks away.
If you need to change your Trip dates we will change your reservations to either another trip date or hold them for future use.
If you do not purchase Peace of Mind Refund Assurance, your purchase will be subject to cancellation fees ranging from 25% - 100%. The fee is contingent upon how close to departure you cancel. We do offer the opportunity to postpone for a 1-time fee of $100.
POM does not cover flight cancellations/delays, trip extensions, or medical emergencies. We strongly recommend all travelers confirm their personal health insurance coverage prior to departure.
Super nice! If you’re traveling with a friend or partner, you’ll room together.
If you’re traveling solo, you’ll likely be sharing a room. Private rooms are available in a limited quantity and at an additional expense that can be added during booking.
Sure can! When you sign up for your trip we ask for allergies and dietary restrictions we’re able to accommodate.
You’re welcome to let us know your dietary preferences or specific foods you don’t like, but we may not be able to meet those preferences entirely.
We will do one volunteer project per trip that take up about half of a day. We have worked with incredible organizations around the US making an impact on their local communities, such as Whale Scout, Sonoma Ecology Center, and Para La Naturaleza.
