Since 1928 the Austin Sunshine Camps have been giving local children the chance to get out and enjoy their summer right in the middle of Zilker Park.
The camps serve families and youth in the greater Austin area that otherwise couldn't afford the camping experience. The overnight summer camps are provided free of charge to all campers who meet the free or reduced school meals income eligibility guidelines.
Each session lasts for five days and four nights and is full of outdoor activities like canoeing, hiking, swimming, science, nature, cooking, arts & crafts, ropes course, and team building activities. Campers are also provided three meals and two snacks a day.
