Review for Snowbird Outfitters Inc, Andrews, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am extremely impressed with SWO. The summer camp is life changing in the students and leaders who attend. Our youth group and I have attended the past 3 summer camps and will be returning this summer for SMO. This camp is full of high adventure activities that the students love and I'm sure is what brings in new groups. But the worship services and breakouts is what keeps students coming back. I was blessed and learned as much as our students did during breakout sessions. They tackle hard issues at a level that the students can relate to. The counselors become the students friends who they can talk to. There have been several counselors who have continued to be in touch and checked in with our students, just to see how they are doing. I can not praise SWO enough. They are bringing God into lives in a real way.

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

I have seen how SWO has affected the youth that I have gone with there. They will talk about the things that they learned there months later. I've heard them quote something they heard at camp that meant something to them. I've seen my own children grow in their faith after going to SWO.

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

Do the rec. sign-ups differently. It's too chaotic and many youth don't get anything that they want to do. It's extremely hard for the more timid students to get in there to sign up also.

Role:  Donor & I am a leader who went to the summer camp at SWO.
