Soulshine Ambassadors Information Guide
Thank you for your interest in promoting the Make A Difference and Soulshine programming at Summer Camp Music Festival! The following is intended to give you a reference as to the goals and expectations of participation in the Soulshine Ambassador program.
Soulshine Ambassadors weave more energy and interconnection into the social and ecological interests of the festival. The Soulshine Ambassadors are the representatives to help connect festival patrons to the ideals and programming throughout the weekend. Soulshine Ambassadors are encouraged to be vocal and highly visible. Be jubilant, be silly, and be loud! There are specific tasks that the Ambassadors will be in charge of facilitating, but the overarching goal is to entice more festival patrons to experience new things within the
Soulshine programing. In the weeks preceding Summer Camp Music Festival, Soulshine Ambassadors are encouraged to collaborate with each other regarding costume ideas, creative chants or other concepts that can help get the attention of large crowds of people. Each Ambassador should review all of the Make a Difference, Soulshine Tent, and NonProfit partner related resources and programing ahead of time. For more background information please visit the Resource links.
