The Adventure Starts Here

Here's what you need to do:

1. Fill out an application.
Please click on the link below to fill out the online application. During the application process, you will have the chance to indicate which position(s) you are interested in applying for as well as your top two camp preferences. To learn more about our five different camps, click here. Staff are encouraged to apply to the camp(s) of their choice, regardless of gender.

2. Your application will be reviewed by one of our Camp Directors.
Once your application has been received, our directors will review it to determine if we wish to move forward with an interview. If you are selected for an interview, we will call or email you to schedule a time to talk to one of our Camp Directors. It will be a chance for us to conduct an interview over the phone or in-person (for local applicants) and an opportunity for you to ask all the questions you have about the summer.

3. Send us three written references.
If your application is successful, we will need three written references in order to offer you a position with us. They should be from teachers, tutors, previous employers or someone who knows you in a professional setting. We will give you more information about references as you move forward in the application process.

The Fresh Air Fund is fully staffed for this summer! We will begin recruitment for 2018 in the fall. If you would like us to contact you once the 2018 application is available, please email us at camping@freshair.org with your contact details and we’ll reach out as soon as we begin recruiting for next summer!

If you have any questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact the Camping Department at 800-367-0003 or contact us online.
