Camp Ambassador Program
WHAT IS A “CAMP AMBASSADOR?
I would like to introduce a great program at the Anthony Wayne Scout Reservation that allows Scouters, Alumni, units, and organizations to help continue to make our property a premiere camping destination for scouts throughout the Central Region. The Council leadership, Camping Committee, Properties Committee, and Summer Camp Leadership Team are always looking for ways to improve camp facilities and enhance our already diverse program. Here is your opportunity to become vested in the long-term sustainability of our camping program and to help make some of these great ideas become a reality!
The Anthony Wayne Scout Reservation receives operational funding from a variety of sources including grants, foundations, Friends of Scouting, and camp revenues. The Ambassador program is not meant to replace these sources of funding, but instead supplement them so that we may continue to enhance the quality of programming and facilities at camp.
As a Camp Ambassador, you may submit a project idea to be considered. Each fall, all Ambassadors will meet for fellowship, discuss project proposals, and vote on which project will receive the raised funds. Pending approval from the Camp Properties Committee, the project will be completed and ready by the next camping season. Additional “votes” may also be purchased by individuals or groups to help make their proposals more likely. 100% of the funds raised through the Camp Ambassador Program will be used for submitted projects.
All project proposals must be submitted with a detailed proposal including materials list, price lists, and drawings (if applicable) with their application. Proposals will be reviewed by the Camp Ranger and Properties Committee for feasibility. Projects that are pre-approved will be presented at the annual Ambassador Meeting/Luncheon to be held in December.
Project ideas are limited to your own creativity and imagination. Ideas can be as simple as replacing old equipment, purchasing new equipment, or building an entirely new building or structure. Funds for these projects are solely generated, however, by members of the Ambassador Program. No other funds will be used. As such, projects are limited by the amount of revenue generated each season through membership. Funds may be carried over for future years as determined and voted on by the Ambassadors.
Project Proposals shall be submitted with membership and should include a description of the project, purpose, estimated total cost, and sketch.
PROJECT PROPOSAL DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 15
Ambassadors should be in attendance at the annual meeting in order for their vote to count. Proxy
voting is permitted as long as it occurs in “real time”. Voting will not be delayed to wait for Ambassadors not in attendance. Ambassadors will not be contacted to include in the voting process. Additional votes may be purchased up to a set time as determined by the coordinating committee.
2023 Ambassador Meeting will be virtually held at a date/time TBD
