N.Y. Announces 2nd Yr. of Ambassador Prog.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced the opening of the 2019 application period for the Campground Ambassador program as part of the state’s Adventure NY initiative to connect more New Yorkers with the outdoors, according to

Volunteer Campground Ambassadors support DEC campground staff in welcoming and assisting the millions of visitors that vacation in the Adirondack and Catskill parks each year. The program was introduced last year and the first group of ambassadors were working in the field during summer 2018.

“This summer, DEC’s first-ever Campground Ambassadors were on the ground helping DEC enhance the customer service experience at our facilities for campers by organizing fun, educational, and meaningful programs and projects,” said DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos “Introducing new visitors to DEC’s facilities, serving long-time visitors, and providing our campers with quality programs is an integral part of the continued success of our campground program and ensuring campers return year after year.”

DEC encourages New York residents who are passionate about camping and the outdoors to help introduce new campers to DEC facilities and other outdoor activities. Ambassadors also aid in connecting campers and day users to nature via environmentally themed activities and programming.
