Colin’s Hope Begins New Partnership With Austin Sunshine Camps

August 12, 2020 | Uncategorized

Colins Hope is excited to share the news of a brand new partnership with Austin Sunshine Camps!

A natural partner for Colin’s Hope, Austin Sunshine Camps has a mission to engage and empower youth through education and outdoor experiences. With water-related activities offered daily at the camp, the opportunities for water safety are endless.

While the details of the partnership are continuing to grow, Austin Sunshine Camps has already incorporated Water Safety with Colin & Friends in one of their virtual camps! 10 campers learned The Whole Hand Rules and pledged to help keep their smaller siblings safe around water.

Additionally, Colin’s Hope is looking forward to the upcoming collaborations:

  • Educating teen campers so that they can then teach water safety to younger campers
  • Training ASC staff & some volunteers around water safety
  • Assisting ASC as they improve their water safety-related policies during their American Camping Association accreditation process
  • and much more!

THANK YOU to Austin Sunshine Camps for commiting to water safety and drowning prevention practices! Together, we aim to create a Gold Standard for water safety and educate as many children and families as possible with life-saving drowning prevention lessons.
