The Best Family Event of Summer: Southampton Fresh Air Home's 32nd Annual American Picnic & Fireworks


The Southampton Fresh Air Home 2019 Summer Camp Season Begins on Sunday, June 23rd
This Sunday, they welcome their campers back for their 118th summer of camp for physically challenged children. From the first summer of 10 children, the camp has grown exponentially to accommodate 150 plus youngsters each summer. Campers enjoy SFAH’s unique, adapted sports programs such as swimming, tennis, sailing, basketball, golf, softball and hockey. In addition, campers participate in arts, crafts, gardening, computers, music, dance, drama, games and cooking.

No child is denied an opportunity to be a camper because of their inability to pay. SFAH provides over $270,000 in financial aid rewards to approximately 100 of the neediest children every summer! The actual cost of a child’s stay at camp is over $3,000 per week. Most of their families pay less than $300 per week after financial aid is offered. 90% of their annual operating revenue is earned via fundraising events, private foundation grants and individual donations.

Proceeds from the Annual American Picnic with Fireworks by Grucci directly support our summer camp activities and programs, so if you’re going to the fireworks know that the money goes toward a good cause.

Southampton Fresh Air Home’s 32nd Annual American Picnic benefit is scheduled for Friday, July 5th at 7:00 p.m at 1030 Meadow Lane. Festivities will include a fun filled carnival with games, stilt walkers and magicians, a delicious American picnic, music, dancing and of course spectacular fireworks display over Shinnecock Bay.

Purchase tickets and reserved tables here! Have a fun-filled July 4th!
