Fresh Air campers, ages 8 to 15, explore the outdoors while having fun and learning new skills. Five of The Fund’s sleepaway camps are located in Fishkill, New York on more than 2,000 acres of wilderness property. The Fund’s Camp Junior in Harriman State Park, New York, named in memory of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz, provides Bronx children with the opportunity to attend sleepaway camp and enjoy outdoor activities.
Through The Fresh Air Fund volunteer host family program, Manhattan children, ages 8 to 14, can visit volunteer families for one week this summer. Many children return to the same family each, summer, forming friendships and gaining new perspectives. Volunteer host families live in small towns, suburban and rural communities along the East Coast. Every host family goes through a rigorous screening process including a home visit, background check, interview and reference check.
