This activity has finished and is no longer running.

Through the generous support of the Young Men’s Business League, Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps has provided free fun-filled overnight summer camp programs for the children of the greater Austin area since 1928. All summer camp programs are provided free of charge for all campers who meet the 2017-2018 free or reduced school meals income eligibility guidelines. Each camp session brings campers together for five days and four nights of exciting outdoor activities including canoeing, hiking, swimming, science, nature, cooking, arts & crafts, ropes course, and team building activities. Transportation to camp is available on the first day only. However, transportation is limited and is first come, first served. In addition, campers are provided three meals and two snacks a day.

Furthermore, by attending Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps, campers take home increased confidence, leadership abilities, better problem-solving skills, and friendships that last a lifetime. Campers learn to resolve conflicts, value diversity, and to share in the success of the group. Fun becomes the foundation on which courage, self-respect, cooperation, and leadership are built.

Our Zilker Park camp is located inside Zilker Park near Barton Springs Pool; it serves campers 8 – 11 years of age. The camp program, under the supervision of experienced counselors, offers activities such as swimming in Barton Springs or Deep Eddy pool, canoeing, arts and crafts, nature study, hikes, games, and a ropes course with a variety of elements including a team wall and trust fall.
