Celeste – The Fresh Air Fund
Celeste
13-year-old from Queens, New York

13-year-old Celeste began her Fresh Air adventures at Camp Hidden Valley when she was 11 years old. After attending the co-ed camp for children with and without special needs, Celeste went to Camp Mariah for the first time last summer. “There’s not a lot to see and do in Queens, but at camp, there is so much more nature around us, and I love the stars,” she says. During the school year, Celeste meets with her tutor weekly and reflects on how much she has benefited from the program. “My school work is definitely improving. Since my parents do not speak English, they are not always able to help me. The best part of the program is that my tutor helps me and never judges me.”
