Your Support Counts


"In the Bronx, all you see are airplanes and streetlights…no stars. At camp, I see the stars every night," said a 10-year-old Fresh Air camper. 

Your support can make a difference in the lives of thousands of New York City children.

Since 1877, more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities have benefitted from free summer experiences in the country. Last year, close to 9,000 boys and girls visited the homes of volunteer host families in 13 states and Canada, enjoyed Fresh Air camps in upstate New York or participated in year-round educational programs at camp and in New York City.
