Through the Fresh Air Fund Program, youth from the inner cities can have a summer filled with suburban living.
The Fresh Air Fund Program has two parts — a camping program and a Friendly Town Program. The camp is based in Fishkill, NY, and is a traditional summer camp. Through this Friendly Town program, kids from NYC come and visit Host families (many in the local area) and spend a week to two weeks with the family doing fun summer activities. Sometimes the families hang out at the beach or in their backyards, other times, host families enroll them in local Fairfield County day camps.
