Austin Sunshine Camps is the only, free overnight camp for underserved youth in Texas. College students from the University of Texas (ASC@UT) and from Texas State University (ASC@TXST) serve the campers of Austin Sunshine Camps each summer through volunteering and fundraising efforts. UT and TXST students will volunteer throughout the year spreading awareness of Austin Sunshine Camps and its mission, as well as volunteer as a counselor and mentor to youth from historically underinvested communities in Austin and surrounding areas.
Zilker Park and Lake Travis
UT and TXST students who volunteer at Zilker Lodge spend a week tucked inside the heart of Zilker Park. Campers aged 8 to 11 and their counselors enjoy 10 days of swimming in Barton Springs, hiking the Greenbelt and sleeping inside of one Austin’s most iconic places.
UT and TXST students who volunteer at Lake Travis spend 10 days at our oasis between Lago Vista and Marble Falls with our campers aged 12 to 15. They participate in swimming, arts and crafts, nature study, hikes, and challenge course activities, including a zip line!
June - August
ASC operates summer camp from June through August. Over the course of one summer, ASC will host four, 10 day sessions filled with fun!
UT and TXST students volunteer at least one session each summer or fundraise for ASC.
