WHAT IS A CAMP AMBASSADOR?
Camp ambassadors share camp and retreat opportunities with children, youth, and families in their local churches and communities and provide information about how to become involved in this life-changing ministry. More specifically, camp ambassadors act as the Dakotas Camping spokesperson within their churches. They are the conduit for information to flow between camps and individual congregations. Ambassadors work closely with their pastor(s), Christian education staff, church families, and Dakotas Camping staff to help make sure families are aware of camping opportunities throughout the year, but primarily in the spring, when registration for summer camps opens.
Camp ambassadors are asked to:
- Work with other church leaders to plan a Camp Sunday celebration—a day designed to provide multiple opportunities for people to hear about Dakotas Camping, including in worship
- Work with church leaders to set a goal for camp participation and find ways to financially support campers
- Promote Dakotas Camping through announcements, bulletins, and newsletters.
- Discuss Dakotas Camping in Sunday School and with youth groups.
- Answer questions and encourage people to register for camp!
The camping ambassador for your church does not do this alone. The Dakotas Camping Staff is happy to work with your ambassador in helping inform your church and community of the camping opportunities in the Dakotas.
