Since 1928, Austin Sunchine Camps have been providing outdoor nature experiences to disadvantaged youth. A few weeks of typical summer camp can cost thousands of dollars. We believe camp is a right and not a privilege. We typically host about 1,200 children and teens each summer at our 2 locations: Zilker Park and Lake Travis. Activities include: hiking; swimming; fishing; canoeing; low and high rope courses; archery; cooperative games; arts and crafts, and a Carnival Night. We also teach conflict resolution and self regulation.
Audiences: Low-income children and teens 8 – 17.
Zilker Camp: Five-day/four-night summer camp for ages 8 – 11.Lake Travis Camp: Five-day/four-night summer camp on Lake Travis between Lago Vista and Marble Falls for ages 12 – 15. Experienced counselors at both locations.Counselors in Training Program: Teens ages 15 – 18 who have finished their final camp and are nominated by counselors to train to be a counselor themselves. Paid compensation for training and eventual work.
Camper Ambassador Program: About 200 children and teens ages 10 – 15 are nominated by counselors, and campers learn leadership skills. Ambassadors and Counselors in Training also participate in service projects once a month.
Family Weekend Camps: A spring and fall weekend camp offers many of the same activities to Ambassadors.
