Gospel-Driven Adult Retreats

Snowbird offers adult retreats during several weekends throughout the year. Carrying the same philosophy as our summer camp programs, and adult conferences and retreats challenge adults through the expositional Bible teaching and personal relationships. And, since we’re based right in the North Carolina mountains, we’ve got some premier high-adventure recreation options to help you enjoy the time away from your day-to-day.

Our retreats provide more than just a “camp experience.” Presenting nearly a dozen intentional retreat and conference options, we want to see lives changed, marriages healed, ministry leaders renewed, and churches equipped to raise up generations eager to carry the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

Adult Retreats at Snowbird

Though the heartbeat of ministry at Snowbird is to impact this generation of students, we believe the Bible instructs that impact to come primarily from the local church. What better way to help fulfill that mandate than to come alongside the Church to equip its men and women to be better ministry leaders, husbands, wives, parents and, ultimately, Christ-followers? Through worship services, Q&A panels, and relevant breakout sessions, Snowbird adult retreats stand on the authority of Scripture to point men and women to a deeper understanding of who Christ is and what He demands of us.

Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters exists to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the exposition of Scripture and personal relationships in order to equip the Church to impact this generation.

Marriage Conference | October 2024

The Snowbird Marriage Conference is the perfect mountain getaway for you and your spouse. You’ll leave refreshed, refocused, and motivated to keep Christ at the center of your marriage. This three-day conference offers four main sessions and several breakout sessions that focus on the biblical purpose of marriage and practical ways to grow in your relationship with the Lord and your spouse.

“A Christ-centered time away from our kids is exactly what we needed for a break. Time to just focus on each other and our roles in our marriage.” – Emily

Men’s Conference | March 2024, September 2024

God has ordained men to be humble, bold leaders among your family, friends, and church. It has nothing to do with your career, family history, or hobbies. We must view ourselves as more than conquerors through Christ, and fight to reflect the image of Christ in everything we do. At Be Strong, we will examine the Bible together to learn how God calls and equips us to lead, protect, serve, and shepherd those around us.

“The teaching was incredible and the recreation was amazing. It was a much-needed weekend that helped me understand what biblical masculinity truly is.” –Jacob

Women’s Retreat | April 2024

This women’s conference is designed for women of all ages who want to be encouraged and challenged by the Word of God. Most Christian women’s conferences are based in a major city, with a big event, and no real opportunity to build relationships. This Snowbird retreat is different. Whether you’re looking for a weekend away with your small group, college friends, or even your daughter, we hope you will come away with a renewed purpose for your calling as a godly woman.

“This experience showed me firsthand what a woman in Christ looks like. I came home knowing Jesus loves me and calls me friend.” – Judy

College Retreat | January

Scripture commands us to be aware of the attacks we face and equip ourselves to be a light in a dark world. The Snowbird College Retreat is designed to equip you to grow deeper in your faith, renew your mind, and engage the culture around you.

“I got closer to my friends on my campus that I didn’t know as well, and I walked away feeling confident that I can be used for the kingdom every day as a student.” – Brooke

Youth Ministry Conference | March 2024

Iron on Iron is a quick weekend event for youth pastors and youth ministry teams designed to refuel and refresh you and your team so you’ll finish strong.

Iron on Iron is designed to equip you to become a more effective youth ministry leader. 

“The overall experience at Snowbird was amazing. The way the staff partners and poured into my family and I was priceless.” – Caleb Batts
