Since we welcomed our first campers in 1928, the Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps has opened a world of possibilities to the youth of Central Texas by providing free week long summer camps to low-income families. Note that campers must qualify for the Texas public school free or reduced lunch program to be eligible to attend summer camp.
Our Lake Travis camp welcomes campers 12 – 15 years of age and is located on Lake Travis between Lago Vista and Marble Falls. The camp program, under the supervision of experienced counselors, offers activities such as swimming in Lake Travis, fishing, canoeing, handicrafts, nature study, hikes, games, and high ropes course with a variety of elements including a climbing wall and zip line. Transportation to camp and three meals each day are included.
Campers gain increased confidence and leadership abilities, better problem-solving skills, and friendships that last a lifetime. They learn to resolve conflicts, value diversity, and to share in the success of the group. Fun becomes the foundation on which courage, self-respect, cooperation, and leadership are built.
The Austin YMBL Sunshine Camp is committed to assuring that our program is made available to all persons and provided to all eligible individuals without regard to race, color, national origin, age, gender, disability, political belief or religion.
