Camp

At overnight camps in New York’s Mid-Hudson Valley, children ages 8-15 make new friends, develop leadership skills and gain self-confidence.

A day at camp is full of fun activities like learning to swim, arts & crafts, archery, learning to play guitar, exploring the outdoors and more!

My favorite part of camp is getting to hang out in the cabins with all my friends  – I’ve made lots of new friends already!

Camp is special to me because I get to see everyone care for each other. At The Fresh Air Fund, we support each other and just like they say, a summer lasts a lifetime.

Friendly Towns

Visiting a volunteer host family is a unique and fun opportunity for children ages 8-14 to travel to a new place and make new friends.

Favorite activities include going to the beach, playing in the backyard, riding bicycles, barbeques, swimming and more!

Friendly Towns is a great chance to experience something new outside of your comfort zone.
