Please note that this application is for NEW applicants. If you worked as a staff member at The Fresh Air Fund in the past, please email camping@freshair.org for instructions on how to reapply for Summer 2022.

The Fresh Air Fund has provided free summer experiences in the outdoors to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Each summer, thousands of children visit either volunteer host families in rural and suburban communities along the East Coast and Southern Canada, attend six Fresh Air camps in New York's Mid-Hudson Valley, or participate in other outdoor programs run by The Fresh Air Fund. In Summer 2020, during the difficult realities of COVID- 19 and the economic crisis, The Fresh Air Fund reimagined summer and developed new in-person and virtual program models to support youth in New York City.

Working at camp is a challenging but rewarding job. All positions require a level of high energy, creativity, patience and flexibility. Fresh Air Fund staff members always need to put campers first and make decisions in the best interests of the campers throughout the summer.

Requirements for all applicants:

  • 18 or older by June 29
  • At least one year of college preferred
  • Experience working with children
  • Sincere motivation to work with children from underserved communities
  • Available to work for the entire duration of orientation and camp sessions
