Such a great place. I have been a camper at Snowbird 5 summers in a row and I would not miss another summer for anything. I am applying to be a staffer there this summer because I love being there. I have grown so much in my spiritual life and walk with Christ because of SWO.

The Great!

Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters is phenomenal! There are so many aspects of SWO that are worth while! Their first class recreation combined with a passion for discipleship are a killer combination. While serving at SWO, I got to experience first hand just how selfless the staff are! They exhaust themselves for the Gospel! It is such an awesome sight to see. In short. SWO is just an awesome place to be... probably the awesomest place on earth!

At Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters I brought several of my public school students down for camp where they were served by the staff and grew in their knowledge and understanding of the gospel.

I have personally experienced the impact of this camp and it s ministry. it reaches beyond and ministers to those in need from their local community to orphanages in other countries. This ministry also equips believers to go to minister in their home towns and on the mission field and has exponential impact for gospel.

I would not make any changes. This camp is designed a purposed exactly how it should be.

Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters does an amazing job with being intentional with the students that come through. There is a 3:1 camper/staff ratio and this makes a huge difference in changing the lives of students that come through with love of the gospel.

I have been attending Snowbird Wilderness outfitters since 2002 as a camper and then from 2006-2009 as a staff member. The atmosphere is different than any other camp I have been to. it is backed up to a landscape that is breathtaking. The recreation is second to none. It offers you a chance to partake in adventures that you normally would not have the opportunity to take part in. The best part of it for me though is the staff and their heart for the camp and the ministry. They are there because they love what they do and they love the people that come in and out of it. There is a 4 to 1 camper staff ratio which makes your experience that more personal. You are not just a face in the crowd. They want to know you and invest in your life. My life has truly been impacted by this place and forever will hold a place in my heart. As a camper, it was the most fun, most challenging, and most rewarding week of my life. As a staff, it was the most humbling, challenging, incredible, rewarding summers that changed my life forever. I could write all day long about it. I have nothing negative to say. I can't encourage everyone enough to check it out. Thanks!

Through Snowbird I have had the opportunity to go and things I never would have otherwise: Sea kayaking, caving, rafting, rock climbing, etc...

The staff at SWO are unique and the heart of the organization. Students may be attracted to the camp for the outdoor recreation, but they keep
coming back because of the person involvement of the staff and the great community they have created.

I have over twenty-five years experience working with students. I have attended many youth camps. Most camps left our group wanting something more, that is until we visited Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters.

Snowbird far exceeded all our expectations and as we have continued to bring groups
to this camp, they have continued to raise the bar. I have never experienced a camp that honors and brings glory to God like Snowbird. The biblical teaching is scripturally sound. The godly leadership is evident the lives of the counselors who are well trained and discipled.

I would not even consider going to another camp. I have seen God use Snowbird to change the lives of the students that we have taken to camp.

Words cannot express the experience that you will have at Snowbird. You will have a tremendous amount of fun but more importantly you will be brought closer in your relationship with God.

Everyone that I have introduced to this camp has come back saying the same thing, "I did not think a camp could be a great as you said, but now I know that you did not even tell the half of it."

Go take the Snowbird Experience - you life will never be the same!

The Great!

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

God works through the lives of Steve Coleman and Brody Holloway in a miraculous way to change the hearts of students and their adult leaders. Snowbird is a tool in the hand of God that He uses to draw students to Himself.

I would invest more of my personal finances to help this camp reach even more students with the Gospel of Christ - I totally believe in this ministry.

At SWO people's lives are changed through the Gospel. i have never been to a more genuine, true, and honest place where people are more consumed with the Gospel and the glory of Jesus Christ than they are with themselves. The people at SWO challenge me in my faith and in my personal growth in Christ in a way that no one else in my life has ever done. Not only did I grow this past summer working on staff, but I was humbled and amazed about the number of student's lives who were drastically changed by the message of Truth that was shared. This is a place where Christ is the King, not man. I have seen young teenage girls with a desire to fight and live very angry lives be turned away from their flesh and fall on their knees before God- and be truly changed.

This ministry does more than just support the students that come to our summer and off-season retreats. It is a major component of the local community, seeking to serve the needs of Andrews, NC and the people that live there. Through working in this ministry I have come to know many of the people that are native to that area, including the elderly adults at a nursing home, the latino population, the surrounding neighbors, local churches, and particularly the local youth of the area. This ministry supports their community in every way possible, and our Snowbird Missions and Outreach program is evidence of that. We are committed to serving the physical needs of the community as well as the spiritual ones.

Although i do not live at SWO year round, I would consider it to be my home. Brody Holloway, the camp director and pastor, is the man I consider to be my pastor is the person I seek spiritual guidance and discipline from. The staff of SWO is committed to serving the Lord and we work as a family, praying for one another, bearing each others burdens and serving together daily in ministry. There is truly nothing like this camp and the type of community that exists here.

On a more recreational level, SWO is also one of the most fun and challenging places to be. We provide multiple opportunities for "challenge by choice" activities for the students and their families and have seen so many kids overcome their fears through on and off-campus rec. As a staff we aren't afraid to be completely ridiculous in order to engage the students and help them see that we are there for them.

The strength of this ministry is in the relationships. We believe in meeting students where they are with the Gospel and then challenging them to see Christ for who He truly is and in that surrender to Him in a radical life change that the Gospel demands from us. Because there is such a strong ratio of campers to counselors, students have multiple opportunities to spend one-on-one time with people who will speak the Truth to them, pray for them, and develop and maintain lasting relationships with them.

In worship they are challenged with sound, reliable, and applicable teaching and learn about real world issues and how we are called to be conformed to the image of Christ.

Snowbird is more than just a camp, it's an escape from homelife for students, a place of refuge and renewal for adults, students, and staff alike, and a place where the Glory of God resides because we desire to make Him known and be conformed to His image.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I will never be the same because of the time I have spent working at SWO. I have learned to do so many things from harnessing students to participate in our on-campus rec to organizing large groups of people and handling lots of paperwork. This summer I will be trained as a rafting guide and can't wait!

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Like I was being obedient to God's call on my life.

I took a group of high school and junior high students from Ohio to SWO two summers ago. I stayed with the high schoolers and participated in the OLD School program which involved camping and hiking. All of my students had a wonderful time. The relationships developed with the leaders at SWO have been valuable for me and for some of my students to this day. SWO does a great job developing leaders to work with the students that attend all summer.
The students love the activites that include rafting, paint ball, mountain biking, rock climbing, etc. The teaching is relevant and Biblical.
SWO has three components: the summer camp, missions camp, OLD school. All three programs are great fun and create lasting memories while helping students draw close to God. I definitely recommend SWO.

The results of my time SWO created a great basis to develop my youth group. To help you understand the personal results, consider this: I still maintain contact with SWO staff that I have only spent one week with over two years ago. It's just that kind of place.

If I had to make changes I would increase the size and improve the seating of the primary meeting room and dining facility. These buildings were functional when I was there, but slightly crowded with metal chairs.
