Join the Countdown to Summer 2019!

With your help, thousands of children living in New York City’s low-income communities will have the opportunity to experience summer in a whole a new way. Through The Fresh Air Fund, children take a break from the city and discover a summer full of outdoor adventures, new friends, endless joy, laughter and a whole lot of sunshine.

Whether they spend two weeks at one of our six overnight camps or with volunteer host families along the East Coast and Southern Canada, this summer can be life-changing for a New York City child. But the clock is ticking!

Please make a gift today to join in the Countdown to Summer. When you do, you give Fresh Air kids the gift of a lifetime

New experiences like hiking a mountain trail for the first time, roasting marshmallows over a campfire, or learning to swim in our crystal-clear lakes allow Fresh Air kids to see the world, and themselves, in a new way.

You can give a child a fresh perspective. You can give them the opportunity to develop confidence, learn new skills ... and return home, and back to school, with new goals for the future.

Thank you. With your help, we’re changing lives, one summer at a time.
