In 2013, Austin Sunshine Camps completed our $3.5 million capital campaign to completely rebuild our Zilker Camp location. We were pleased and excited to welcome our first group of campers for eight sessions in the summer 2015! The new building has increased our capacity by 50% by expanding the number of bunk rooms from 8 to 12! It also features a computer lab, library, multiple programming spaces, expanded kitchen and office space for all staff.

New Zilker Facility

Sunshine Giving Tree
The new Zilker Camp features an impressive and unique hand carved tree in the Alec Beck Great Room. The cast bronze sculptured tree trunk and rock will highlight multi-colored leaves, bronze acorns and carved stone pavers for the various giving levels. There is limited room remaining for you to remember someone special, celebrate an anniversary, holiday, gift or birthday. The Sunshine Giving Tree provides a unique and beautiful opportunity to create a perpetual remembrance of loved ones and friends. Please contact jenny@sunshinecamps.org if you are interested in leaving a lasting legacy for our campers.

  • Small leaf- $250-$999
  • Large Leaf- $1,000- $9,999

  • Bronze acorns- $25,000- $99,000
