How do I become an ambassador?
Set up with your priest or Sr. Warden a meeting to discuss your desire to be an ambassador for Camp All Saints for your congregation and show the list of responsibilities to them. Receive the approval of your Priest or Sr. Warden to serve as the Camp All Saints Volunteer Coordinator for your congregation. E-mail the Executive Director of Camp All Saints with your current contact information and a good time to be called. The Director will call you and review any training you may need to be an effective ambassador in your congregation.
The first two steps are...
1. The Priest in Charge must approve you for this ministry in your congregation.
Annual Onward Campaign
Planning your campaign
Camp All Saints Sunday:
Have all the handouts you need to give out at the Celebration Sunday: either during the service with the bulletins or at fellowship time. Make sure the priest and you are familiar with what the individuals will be saying about their experiences about Camp All Saints. May all things bring glory to God! Be specific when talking about each camp offered at Camp All Saints by reading the brochure with the congregation and explaining the purpose of each camping opportunity. Be ready to answer questions and make yourself available to parishioners who would like more information. Assure that no one will be turned away for financial reasons, thus the Scholarship Fund.
Be specific regarding gifts. There are three "restricted funds" the camp seeks support for each year, (more on this in your training).
Specifically, these funds are:
1. Scholarship Fund
2. Special Projects Fund
3. The Camp All Saints Endowment
Any funds with a specific designation need to be listed in the memo line of each check. Any check with no designation will be placed in the scholarship fund.
ie: money, volunteers, labor, prayer time, scholarships and forward this information to the Director of Ambassadors. A congregation may choose to solicit funds for all three or simply choose one on its Camp All Saints Sunday. The ambassador is responsible to send funds donated to Camp All Saints with the proper designation. Send a Thank You note to volunteers or groups of volunteers for their efforts in keeping Camp All Saints a vital ministry in the Diocese of Dallas.

Have a Celebration:
Sing before the Lord, Rejoice with musical instruments and camp songs, be joyful and share that exceeding joy with all who will listen. Fellowship together and make an action plan for your congregation to live into the life of the body of Christ, live into the life at Camp All Saints and live into their Baptismal Covenant. May God richly bless you in this ministry.
