Austin Sunshine Camps Summer Associate Counselors, OneStar
Located in the heart of Zilker Park, Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps (ASC) works to engage and empower youth through education and outdoor experiences. ASC serves economically disadvantaged youth in Central Texas at no cost to children and families. ASC provides opportunities for youth through our week-long residential summer camps at Zilker Park (ages 8-11) and the Lake Travis Camp (ages 12-15.) We serve youth from low-income families and are able to offer ALL of our programs completely free of charge! We offer eight sessions throughout the summer and welcome 60- 100 campers per session. Camp sessions teach life skills, self-confidence, trust and teamwork while providing outdoor recreation through activities such as arts and crafts, sports, canoeing, hiking, swimming and other team activities. In the short-term, our outcomes are to increase awareness of the outdoors and environment, improve the attitude of participants and their ability to be a kid, and increase their perception of a safe environment. Long-term the camp aims to increase participants’ problem-solving skills, social skills, and awareness and acceptance of differences in people.
