Fresh Air Family Wellness: Outdoor Adventures, Family Time and Nature Offer Rejuvenation to NYC Families
Just two hours away from NYC, at The Fund’s camps in New York’s Mid-Hudson Valley, the Fresh Air Family Wellness program has offered NYC families the chance to relax, enjoy the fresh air, explore nature, spend time together and experience camp activities like swimming, hiking and kayaking.
Many families have shared with us that the day at camp was the first time they have been able to enjoy family time outdoors safely since March. With so many fun activities available – from arts & crafts to fishing or visiting the camp planetarium or model farm, the day is full of outdoor adventures! The Fresh Air Family Wellness program is designed to follow all safety protocols including wearing masks and physical distancing.
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, so we hope you enjoy some of our favorite Family Wellness photos!
“COVID-19 has changed the way we do things. While I was hesitant at first, from the moment we arrived during check-in to the activities or the snacks and meals provided and the dining set-up, my mind was at ease,” says New York City mom, Cassandra. “My girls and I enjoyed the activities offered to us. From watercolor painting, fishing to swimming. I loved how they have the swimming pool sectioned off per family to ensure social distancing. We really appreciated the break we had from being indoors in the City.”
