Fresh Air children and host families enjoyed an exhilarating experience at Niagara Falls' American side. The families "soaked up the experience" on the Cave of the Winds tour.

City children boarded buses on July 17 and headed for the Western New York area to reunite with their host families at the bus arrival in Amherst.

This summer, more than 4,000 youngsters will enjoy a summer outside of the city with volunteer host families in suburban, rural and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada through The Fresh Air Fund's Volunteer Host Family Program.

The Fresh Air Fund is an independent, not-for-profit agency that has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Each summer, more than 4,000 children visit volunteer host families in rural, suburban and small town communities.
