At Camp Tommy…

Boys, ages 13-15, have fun swimming, playing basketball and volleyball, learning new skills like playing musical instruments and woodworking. The camp is named after Tommy Hilfiger for his generous support.

Campers develop a strong sense of brotherhood, building friendships and supporting each other – as they take on new challenges like the zip line on the high ropes course or during a team-building activity.

Campers tell us they look forward to becoming Counselors-in-Training and participating in the leadership and skill building workshops which will prepare them to return to camp as counselors.

I was a camper for nine years and am so excited to be a counselor this summer. I am looking forward to having a leader position this year and making an impact on the campers the same way that my counselors had on me when I was a camper.

This will be my fifth year at camp. My absolute favorite activity at camp is when we all gather in a big group near the water. For me, that’s the essence of camp – meeting new people and sharing stories. It’s the main reason I keep coming back, thanks to the amazing people I’ve connected with during these camp experiences. I love being surrounded by nature, and believe that at camp, everyone should feel free to be themselves.

It’s my 9th time here at camp at The Fresh Air Fund and it’s become more like family for me here. I love coming back and playing with everyone around and I feel like everyone knows me the moment I arrive here every time. I’d tell first timers to just appreciate nature and embrace it. I’ll also tell them to try out new things and go out of your comfort zone.
