Any private visits between Fresh Air participants and host families are not part of The Fund’s programming and are not official Friendly Towns visits. This means that the typical support, programming, and coverage you receive from The Fresh Air Fund is not available, including: medical insurance information, 24/7 Support Services support, updated background checks, local volunteer support, home visits, transportation assistance, and liability assistance.
On their Fresh Air visits, children ride bikes, learn to swim, build sandcastles and discover the wonders of the nighttime sky. Many Fresh Air children are re-invited to stay with the same host family year after year and form friendships that last a lifetime.
When you host a child for one week during the summer, you forge friendships and inspire new perspectives – opportunities that shine well beyond summer.
