SNOWBIRD OUTFITTERS INC
October 17, 2012

I'm amazed by the positive & life changing impact Snowbird Outfitters, Inc. has had and continues to have on the lives of today's youth. Their love for Christ and commitment to confront students with the life-changing message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through teaching, recreation and personal relationships is unbelievable. Both my son and daughter attended camp this summer for the first time and I can say without reservation that they returned changed. They keep talking about their experiences and can't wait to return next summer. Thank You Snowbird for your commitment to Christ and obedience in serving him in the camp ministry.

SNOWBIRD OUTFITTERS INC
February 15, 2011

My first experience with Snowbird was in 1998 when I volunteered for a week of land clearing and construction. I could sense right away that this place was marked by God and chosen for a special purpose. I continued going back each year to visit and volunteer, having just a small part in this great work always brought great encouragement to me. My volunteering eventually lead to being asked to serve as a board memeber. This new role has brought on new tasks and opportunities which are often very challenging but always worth it, it's been a great pleasure to serve and work alongside so many who are commited to Jesus Christ.

Looking back now I'm amazed to see and reflect on how God chose a few ordinary and faithful people, gave them an undevelped creek bottom and a vision for youth ministry and then worked faithfully through them to do such big things. AWESOME!

The Great!

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

I've witnessed and heard people's testimony on how God has saved them and then healed their brokeness and given them purpose and meaning in Himself. Personally, the friendships I've gained through my time spent as SWO has been so encouraging. Working alongide others who are passionate about what God has done/is doing has been very good for me. I'm so thankful to God for blessing me with such great friends.

Ways to make it better...

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

One challenge I see for SWO now is the strategic planning for the future. As with any new org. so much happens so fast in the early years that it's difficult to keep up in all areas. While I think SWO has managed this quite well, now is the time to "settle" a little and work on a plan to insure that SWO remains healthy and strong in the years to come. This is an area both mngmt. and the board are working on now and I'm pleased with many of the accomplishments already.
