Fresh Air Fund sends our younger Newarkers to camp

Families fight nerves, relish excitement as Greater Newark Fresh Air Fund helps send kids to summer camp

Nasir, who first went to camp two years ago — also through the Fresh Air Fund — said he suffered from a little separation anxiety back then. Despite how close he is to his dad, he said, doesn’t share his father’s anxiety this go ’round.

“I can’t wait to see friends that I made and to make new friends,” he said with a blush. “I love sports, so I’m also looking forward to playing sports and having fun with my cabin mates and counselors.”
