The family will be taking pictures during Natasha's visit and sending them back to her mother.
Kristin Crouch, of Stephentown, expects her family will be showing Seattle a taste of the great outdoors during her two-week visit. She greeted the 12-year-old along with her daughters, Savannah and Olivia.
"She says she's never been camping, so we're camping this weekend," she said.
Crouch learned about the program through her daughters, who had friends who were hosting visitors.
"I've wanted to do it for a couple of years," she said.
The Fresh Air Fund is still looking for host families for the Aug. 23 to Sept. 1 time period. For more information or to sign up, visit www.freshair.org.""
