The Austin Sunshine Camps are FREE camps and after school programs for children of all ages. Their goal is to engage and empower youth through education and outdoor experiences. Lets help keep this possible!
Established in 1928 by the Young Men's Business League of Austin (YMBL), the Austin Sunshine Camps (ASC) provides enrichment opportunities for low-income boys and girls of Central Texas for over eighty years. ASC staff and YMBL members work with the children during their signature summer camp programs and year-round academic programs to help develop the tools necessary to overcome the variety of difficulties they face in their day-to-day lives. The children are assailed on all fronts from challenges of poverty and family disintegration to the threats of drug abuse and violence. ASC's ultimate goals are to prepare today's high-potential, low-income Central Texas students for the challenges of tomorrow and help reduce the high school dropout. ASC accomplishes this through the cultivation of academically strong and socially conscious young men and women by fostering life skills and promoting educational success. Since it's inception, the Austin Sunshine Camps have served more than 46,000 children.
