About Zilker Park Camp

Our Zilker Park camp is located inside Zilker Park near Barton Springs Pool; it serves campers 8 – 11 years of age for ten days and nine nights. In 2024, there will be one session option of 7 days and 6 nights for campers ages 8 & 9. The camp program offers activities such as swimming in Barton Springs, canoeing, arts and crafts, nature study, hikes, games, and a challenge course with a variety of elements including a team wall and high ropes elements.

Zilker Park Camp Features

Bunk Beds

Zilker Lodge is home to over 120 beds. Each cabin has six bunk beds, and has at least two adult staff members who sleep in the cabin.


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

Gaga Ball

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


Campers swim in the beautiful Barton Springs (or just outside of it) multiple days per session. All campers are required to wear lifejackets, regardless of swimming ability.

Ropes Course

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


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.
