Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has provided free summer opportunities to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities. Every summer, 3,000 campers attend one of their five overnight camps on a beautiful property 65 miles north of New York City. Each camp offers a well-rounded experience with activities ranging from photography, ceramics, robotics and creative writing to recreation, swimming and outdoor adventure. The Fresh Air Fund hires over 450 staff members from around the world to work at their camps in a variety of roles and staff members are hired to work at a specific Fresh Air Fund camp. Details about each individual camp can be found online at: www.freshair.org/summer-camping-program
Staff will receive one day and one night off during each camp session as well as time off in between camp sessions.
The most admirable quality in a Fresh Air Fund staff member is a commitment to work with children from underserved communities. We are looking for applicants who have a minimum of 2 years of experience working with youth. Counselors should be flexible, energetic, patient, creative, comfortable in the outdoors, self-motivated, enjoy group living and have the ability to work as part of a team. Staff should be prepared for a challenging and rewarding summer!
At Camp ABC, Girls aged nine to 12-years-old live in small groups where they learn to develop self-confidence, independence and teamwork skills. For 13-15-year-olds at Camp ABC, The Fresh Air Fund has established the Precious Center for Teen Leadership. Inspired by the film Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire, the Center is intended to give young women a safe, nurturing environment to focus on their futures.
