Ambassador Program

Our “MMC Ambassador Program” connects camp first timers, beginners to playing, and newbies to bluegrass music with a ‘seasoned’ camper. It’s a one-on-one opportunity for connection, to help answer questions about camp, learn the ropes the first day at camp, or to just talk about Bluegrass.  Anyone signing up for camp can request to be matched with an ‘Ambassador’!  Our Ambassadors continue to ‘play it forward’ in so many ways!
