I have visited Snowbird on one ocassion for a men's retreat and immediately made plans for my next trip, which is coming up on March 11, 2011. The facilities were very nice, the grounds were clean and beautiful. I received great spiritual encouragement anf have seven friends returning with me this year. The break out learning sessions and recreational events were extremely powerful and relaxing.
I would refer any of my friends or youth groups to this camp.

SWO is a great camp. The activities and recreation make this camp the most flexible and fun a student can have. The staff is what sets this camp apart from all other youth church camps. They hire a large staff to student ratio and that means that college students are trying to engage your students in conversation to help point them to Christ and help them understand the world from a Biblical perspecitve.

As a youth pastor I appreciate the logs that the staff fills out and the camp mails to me as a follow up. It helps me know understand and love my students even better.

Best youth camp I have ever been to!!

Snowbird is definitely a doctrine centered ministry. Students leave after a week having learned so much about who Christ is and what it looks like to follow Him. They also leave having learned about what their own relationship with Christ looks like. All while keeping kids entertained with the high advnture recs.

I was a camper for two summers and loved to one on one relationship my counselors had with me. I came back to be a couselor becasue it was great to build relationships with other campers. The full time staff are great and open themselves up to everyone to show what Christian community really looks like.

If I could change anything about Snowbird, I would what the fact that the staff want to get to know campers and want to share with them. So many times campers just don't open up. I feel that by stressing that staff members are available and want to talk with them is a good idea.

Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters is all about sharing the love of Jesus Christ with young people who need attention, understanding, love and a Savior. My daughter worked as a counselor there one summer and grew more spiritually and in compassion for others than she had in all of her previous years I believe. While ministering to others full-time, she gained a lifetime experience that set the stage for the remainder of her life.
Our entire family visited the camp and saw first hand the extreme challenges and offerings that are given to the campers. My son has just become a youth minister in Virginia and has as one of his goals to get his "city-grown" youth to experience the growing process at Snowbird - soon!
We praise the Lord that ordinary people like the creators of Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters have granted extraordinary experiences to so many children.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing my daughter grow spiritually, professionally and in her confidence level. She has also stayed in contact with campers that she met that craved her attention and mentoring. It is by far the best experience my daughter has had!

I got know Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters through my daughter who volunteered there for 2 years. I have had the opportunity to visit many times. I was truly amazed by the dedication of the staff and their families in serving the youth that attend there and to serving our Lord and Savior. The camp opens their beautiful camp grounds for so many to enjoy. The recreational activities are very adventurous and offer new experiences to many people, including myself. I am not usually one for much adventure, but was talked into riding their three man swing (which is a large, very high swing). I loved every min! The staff also does a wonderful job pouring their all into the worship, teaching, and making their skits very unique and powerful. Snowbird has definitely left a positive impression in my life and I have been able to see it positively affect others as well. Also, recently, I experienced a challenging time of illness. The staff and families at Snowbird supported me through love, prayers and encouraging notes and calls. Their care for me and my family truly meant a lot.

I have no suggestions for them on this. I would like to make mention that I tried to post this review to be counted for a campaign, but the website would not allow me to.

SNOWBIRD has been an extraordinary blessing to me and to those I serve. By going above and beyond the call of duty to meet the needs of those they are serving, they have affectively raised the bar—setting a new high standard for how an organization should be run, and how people should be served. In ever aspect of their service, they have one simple and simultaneously daunting goal: Meet as many needs of as many people in as many ways as possible.
SNOWBIRD has been a vital part of what I do as a student pastor. They not only provide the students with top notch facilities and quality activities, but they make the planning process as stress free as possible. Taking students out of state is the most stressful part of my job, but my workers and I relish the times at SNOWBIRD. It is a time where we can be refreshed and connect with our students. Not enough can be said about SNOWBIRD WILDERNESS OUTFITTERS. It truly is a joy to spend time with people who not only love what they do, but that love the God and people they do it for. At SNOWBIRD everyone is family.

I was a camp counselor for Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters the summer of 2008. I grew in my relationship with the Lord and I loved fellowshiping with other believers through worship. I enjoyed being around teenagers and being a mentor to them. SWO challenged me to grow spiritually to love others no matter what.

My wife and I have attended a couples weekend for the past three years and we absolutely love it. I am impressed with how the staff loves the Lord and it shows in everything they do. The teaching is biblical and practical for my marriage. The staff really cares about helping in every way for my marriage to work and go beyond. The atmosphere is wonderful and the sleeping arrangements are good too. We are well taken care of when if comes to food. I enjoy the skills/fun time with my wife. I feel safe and that they are competent in what they do. I can't wait to go back each year and take more people with us.
