camper ambassador program

Started in 2018, this is an invitationonly, year-round program for campers, comprised of day camps, service projects, and weekend family camp experiences. The goal of this program is for our Ambassadors to serve as leaders in their cabins and among their peers. The CAP program is dedicated to growing and strengthening the relationship between Austin Sunshine Camps and the families that are served through our summer camp. 

Our Goals

We provide programming during the school year that helps strengthen our relationships and build intentional community with campers and their families and we provide opportunities for select summer campers to become leaders, or Camper Ambassadors. 

the three cs

At ASC we come together across lines of difference to build lasting friendships, learn to resolve conflict restoratively, and to feel heard and empowered. We intentionally build a community based on trust, kindness and compassion.

We have important, real emotions, and at ASC we support campers’ growth in regulating those feelings. We believe that this learning increases our compassion and empathy for others.

To be creative is to grow. ASC gives campers freedom and choice throughout their time at camp. In those moments of opportunity to be wildly creative, campers learn new ways to problem-solve, think critically, and appreciate the world in which they live.

Day camp and service projects


ASC provides high-quality programming to campers that are led by ASC Staff and Counselors-In-Training.

Selection Process

The Camper Ambassador Program is a selection only program. Campers will be selected by: 

  • 1. Participation in previous summer camp
  • 2. Nomination from summer camp staff
  • 3. Parent participation 


Participants in the CAP will play an important role while at camp. Each Camper Ambassador who completes the year-long program will be invited to participate in Kick-Off Camp.  Weekend Camp is Austin Sunshine Camp’s kickoff to Summer Camp. While at camp, each CAP camper will be a leader in their cabin. They will be a support for their peers as well as a model of Austin Sunshine Camp’s three pillars.
