campers have daily swimming lessons, go hiking, play sports, and learn new skills in classes like guitar, arts and crafts, outdoor adventure, photography and coding. With nature as their classroom, Fresh Air campers explore the outdoors, all while having fun and learning new skills. Many campers return to camp year after year, and may go on to participate in our Counselors-in-Training (CIT) program. Our CITs develop leadership skills and often return as counselors.
Five of our sleepaway camps are located on Sharpe Reservation, a more than 2,000 acre property just two hours from New York City. Our sixth camp, Camp Junior in memory of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz, is located at Harriman State Park.
During their outdoor summer adventures, campers develop the confidence to take on new challenges, learn new skills and make new friends.
