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 and/or tenured camper of 2 plus years
  • 3. Parent participation 


Participants in the CAP will play an important role while at camp. Each camper will be invited to participate in Weekend 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 SHINE Values.
