SNOWBIRD OUTFITTERS INC
February 16, 2012

Snowbird Wildernes Outfitters continues to excel at impacting the lives of teenagers. Their dedicated staff creates environments where teenagers are challenged physically, mentally, and spiritually. They truly desire to relate to students on a one on one basis for development. I have never experienced an organization more able to remain passionate and intentional in developing today's teens.

Snowbird Outfitters is an incredible organization focused on challenging teenagers physically, spiritually, and in leadership. Snowbird has impressed me through its emphasis on relationships. It maintains a low, staff to client ratio which allows for more 1 on 1 mentoring to develop students. They also commit to maintaining these relationships through personal contact; email, facebook, texting, etc, well after your visit. This is well above the normal expectation for this type of organization.

I have attended many other youth development programs but none have provided such a wide array of opportunities to reach large numbers of students. Each student is at a different level of maturity, has different interests, and learns in different ways. Snowbird works hard to provide something for everyone to connect all students with an experience. Whether, high-adventure, relaxing times, recreation, drama, music, or teaching there is something for everyone. These are provided in a high-quality format which does not compromise the focus.

The most impacting thing about Snowbird Outfitters is the personal impact they have had on my family. My children love Snowbird and are even interested in becoming staff members there. Their counselors remain in contact with them, 3 years later, and have even invited them to weddings. I know that whatever has Snowbird's name attached will be quality, relational, and impacting.

The Great!

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

the long term impact on my students and my family. I allow my students to decide where they go to Summer Camp. Unanimously they pick Snowbird every year. And, I know that each year the students have grown more and more.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want them to expand. I think counselors should have better accommodations than renovated broken-down school buses.
