Camp Facility

Bunk Beds

Zilker Lodge is home to over 120 bunk beds. Each camper bunks with 10 other kids within their same gender and age group as well as a camp counselor.

Gaga Ball

Our Gaga ball pit is a camp staple. Gaga ball is the perfect game that gets all of our camper active and on their feet. Gaga Ball is a camp favorite.

ropes Course

Our ropes course are designed for team building and confidence boosting. Challenge yourself this summer with a fun safe high ropes challenge.


The showers at camp are built to provide privacy and quality. Each shower has a designated changing station before entering into the shower stall.


In addition to our gaga ball pit, Zilker Lodge also has a basketball court and a playground perfect for campers to engage with the outdoors.


Being in the heart of Zilker Park we are a hop and a skip away from the Nature and Science center as well as the all of the unique wildlife within Zilker.
