Thank you to the Austin area media for your coverage of this historic community milestone.
On June 25, 2015, Austin Sunshine Camps and the Young Men’s Business League marked the completion of their $3.5 million capital campaign and the culmination of a lot of hard work and generosity from many dedicated individuals, organizations, and area businesses including IE2 Construction Inc., Furnishing Dreams, IKEA Round Rock, Mabee Foundation, Nelson Puett Foundation, and the YMBL Sunshine Foundation.
The new facility increases capacity by 50% by expanding the number of camper bunk rooms from 8 to 12, thus allowing the programs to serve over 1,000 Austin area youth at no cost to them or their families. The new facility also includes a computer lab, library, multiple programming rooms, an expanded kitchen, and office space for the staff. The previous facility, built in 1932, was last renovated in the 1970s.
