Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters excels at purposeful investment in the lives of young people. both their campers and their counselors. They create an environment of community and mutual respect. The property itself is beautiful and well-maintained, but the primary focus one feels when on campus is the commitment to their purpose of loving, training, and developing youth.

I have seen the results of this organization's investment in its counselors. I have had service opportunities involving youth with two of the counselors, one here in the USA and one when in Peru. Both of these young men exhibited an extreme commitment and respect, as well as a willingness to personal sacrifice.

Perhaps my pie in the sky wish (not just for this camp but for all youth camps) would be more healthy nutritious food choices for meals. (they do have an excellent salad bar) But, of course, it's camp---the kids expect the food to be camp food!! So I am not sure most kids would appreciate this change. ha ha!

Nestled in the Nantahala valley of NC, SWO is a camp designed to disciple youth into a deeper relation ship with Christ. The permanent staff have a deep and well-articulated faith that they share with carefully-selected summer staff of 150-200 college and upper high school students. The training at this level is intense. These students, in turn, while growing in their faith, talk, walk, play, pray, cry, and nurture 300-400 middle and high school campers each week for nine weeks. It is a life-changing experience for staff and campers each summer. (And a lot of fun!)

Really the only changes needed are because of their need to expand due to the challenges brought on by more and more people wanting to go to Snowbird for camp.

Anne Tully is a really good friend of mine! The way she talks about SnoBird and how the Lord has impacted her life in drastic ways through her experience, is so encouraging to me!

I had the incredible opportunity to attend camp at Snowbird and it was a lifechanging experience. The people are so real and so encouraging, so ready to do anything they can to minister to you and help you in whatever way God wants them to. It was a really fun weekend with so much to do and be involved in, i not only enjoyed myself but also learned a lot. I was definitely impacted by the godly and Christlike attitudes of the people who make Snowbird possible.

The people of Snowbird have impacted my family in soo many ways and done so much to minister to us with selfless Christlike attitudes and it has impacted my life and the lives of my family members. Also my brother worked for Snowbird, and he has countless stories of kids whose lives have been changed because of their awesome experience there.

This was an experience I was first hesitant about. It was a different environment that I wasn't used to, but when I finally decided to go I never thought that I would enjoy it as much as I did. Snowbird is an exciting adventure from start to finish. Between the fun activities like rafting, playing on their gym-like equipment, and the hilarious skits, there is never a dull moment. The critical thing that people need to know about SWO is that it's not just about the fun activities you get to do there, but the people and events that help strengthen your relationship with God, or if your not already a believer, can help you become one. The sermons every morning, the breakout sessions, and the evening talks with the counselors all give the campers a chance to grow in their faith whether a young believer or someone who has been faithful for a long time. The staff makes you feel very comfortable, making you feel that you can share anything with them and knowing that they are there to answer an questions you may have is a great feeling. I went into camp thinking I was a pretty strong believer, and would end up helping others more, but it turned out I learned more things to help me. It helped bring about issues I needed to deal with and the staff was right there to help alleviate the emotional stress, and clear my doubts. After going to the camp, I think that had I not went I would've missed out on a great opportunity to enjoy fellowship with my friends and have fun in the summer, but also learn so much about the wonderful God we serve. It was an awesome adventure, and I can't wait to do it again!

I have went to SWO for two years it was absolutely amazing. You can have fun by learning God's word at the same time. You can experience opportunites to do stuff that you may never get to do otherwise. It is a great place to be. I would reccomend it to anyone that has a youth member or when I have my kids someday I would want them to go here or somewhere like here. Its for all ages and for all different kinds of camps go on. Camp is awesome! SWO ROCKS!

Build more cabins so more people could attend at one time. Add on to the worship center so capacity could be larger.
