MAHWAH—A welcoming family greeted Karen Carreon, an 8-year-old from Spanish Harlem, when she stepped off the bus in Mahwah Friday.

The Fresh Air Fund, a nonprofit, had sent a group of New York City kids to enjoy free summer vacations experiencing the outdoors.

Through the fund’s Friendly Town Program, families can volunteer to host a child between the ages of 6 and 12 for two weeks during the summer.
