The Fresh Air Fund

Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities. At Fresh Air camps in Fishkill, NY, and with volunteer host families along the East Coast and Southern Canada, Fresh Air kids learn new skills, discover talents, build confidence, make friends and have fun. During the school year, The Fresh Air Fund continues to support students through tutoring, mentoring and leadership programs. Fresh Air children on their first visits stay for one to two weeks, ages seven to 12 for the Friendly Town Program & ages eight through 15 for the sleep away camp.
