BENEFITING: Austin YMBL Sunshine Camp
EVENT DATE: May 08, 2016
YMBL & AUSTIN SUNSHINE CAMPS The Silicon Labs Sunshine Run benefits the Young Men's Business League whose main endeavor in money and time is to support the Austin Sunshine Camps. As the only FREE camp in Central Texas, it provides a nurturing environment where our community's low income youth are introduced to camping, conservation, nature studies, physical exercise, and social interaction while enjoying the natural beauty and outdoors of Zilker Park and Lake Travis. Our programs enrich the community by encouraging and facilitating the power to succeed through education and healthy living. Recognizing education can serve as a transformative tool, Sunshine4Afterschool was developed to arm our participating youth with the skills needed to succeed socially and academically. This program, which focuses on STEM, life skills and outdoor education, brings together middle school students for an afterschool program five days a week. Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps renders the space and comfort our kids need to look beyond their current situation and dream big.
