Review for Snowbird Outfitters Inc, Andrews, NC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Snowbird is a camp dedicated to building solid Christian character in young men & women as well as the employees, volunteer helpers, and affiliates. Having worked for a camp such as theres, brought children there as campers, and myself working in the recreation field, I can confidently speak about the camp. Dedicated staff, great recreation, purpose beyond themselves, relationships that impact lives, and more are all hallmarks of Snowbird. I hope to be in a role like theirs in my lifetime.

It's hard for college & high school students to step out of their cliques and typical-youth selfishness. As much as I respect the organization, it's not immune to typical social issues that we see in youth. I think it's a challenge for all young adults to grow in that area.
