In 2013, Austin Sunshine Camps completed our $3.5 million capital campaign to completely rebuild our Zilker Camp location. The current facility was built in 1932 and last renovated in the 1970’s. It does not have central heat or air and floods every time it rains. We are beginning construction in the Summer of 2014 and are excited to unveil a vastly expanded facility in the spring of 2015. The new building will increase capacity by 50% by expanding the number of camper bunk rooms from 8 to 12! It will also include a computer lab, library, multiple programming spaces, expanded kitchen and office space for all staff. The Capital Campaign committee worked tirelessly to raise the $3.5 million to build the building but the hard work isn’t over yet! Austin Sunshine Camps is still asking for support for building furnishings and equipment. Click here to support the capital campaign!
