Announced by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. during his annual “State of the Borough” address on February 21, 2019, “Camp Junior” opened at Harriman State Park in the summer of 2019. This new camp was created in memory of Lesandro “Junior” Guzmán-Feliz, a 15-year-old who was murdered at the hands of gang members, a tragedy that galvanized the city and spawned the “Justice for Junior” campaign.
“Camp Junior” is administered by The Fresh Air Fund and has the full support of Lesandro’s parents, Leandra Feliz and Lisandro Guzman.
