Sunshine Camp has provided a fun-filled experience for children of greater Austin since 1928. It is conducted by the Young Men’s Business League (YMBL) and it is free to those children ages 12 through 15 who are selected. Campers stay for seven days overnight at the camp located at Lake Travis. Soap, towels, bedding (except pillows), camping gear, etc. are all provided.
Campers need only bring the following: tennis shoes, bathing suits, a blanket, a pillow, grooming aids and a cap as well as underclothes, shorts and T-shirts for 7 days. THESE ARE THE ONLY ITEMS CAMPERS WILL ALLOWED TO BRING TO CAMP. If a camper brings any other items, Counselors will store the items in a safe place and return them at the end of the camp session. Weapons and drug paraphernalia will not be returned.
The camp program, under the supervision of experienced counselors, includes swimming in Lake Travis, team building exercises, hiking, challenge course activities, map and compass activities, campfire programs, camping skills, outdoor cookery, canoeing and first aid. The children are also served three nourishing meals a day.
