About Fresh Air Family
Fresh Air Family has served 7,500 children so far this year in award-winning
science programs. Much of our outreach is to underserved children, who
receive financial aid to our summer camps and school field trips. The proceeds
from the Wacky Tacky Light Tour goes to provide the funds for these
School Field Trips available at a variety of locations. Design-thinking programs
based on science and fun! Like fishing, animal programs, hikes, experiments.
Classroom programs – Focusing on design-thinking, we bring our science program to the
c classroom to teach science, zoology, biology and survival skills.
Gross Out Camp –We offered 16 of these award-winning science camps at locations across Alabama. Gross Out Camp received the Peggy Spain McDonald Bright Idea Award from the Alabama Department of Education.
Prepared, Not Scared Camp – A partnership with Jefferson County Sheriff Mark Pettway to teach children how to survive severe weather, getting lost and other dangers.
Family hikes – We offer more than 400 family hikes, most of them free.
Scale Back Alabama – Annually, Fresh Air Family is the activity arm for the Alabama Department of Health and Alabama Hospital Association’s weight loss program called Scale Back Alabama. Last year, more than 35,000 participated.
