Austin Sunshine Camps

The Young Men’s Business League of Austin (YMBL) founded the Austin Sunshine Camps (ASC) in 1928, and it remains the League’s major philanthropic endeavor over 90 years later. ASC has served over 50,000 low-income, high potential youth through its overnight Summer Camp Program and its year-round Camper Ambassador and Counselor-in-Training Programs, all of which are free to the families ASC serves. Campers learn new ways to problem-solve, think critically, and appreciate the world in which they live. ASC’s programs focus on creating intentional community, rooted in compassion, and that inspire campers to be wildly creative and have fun!
