What is the programming like at Snowbird?

The SWO College Retreat is packed with biblical preaching, worship, breakouts, recreation, and building real relationships with others from your church and school. Some students attend as individuals, but most attend as a small or larger group.

What recreation will be available?

The scheduled recreation at the SWO College Retreat includes any of our on-campus recreation options, like our climbing tower, aerial park, zip line, paintball course and gun range.

What types of housing do you provide?

We have over 14 cabins, divided by bedrooms for each group. They each provide twin-sized bunk beds, air conditioning, and heat. Our cleaning team takes great pride in keeping things clean but the buildings are simply functional. You’ll need to provide your own bedding, pillow and towels. The bathouse is a short walk across the property.

How do I add or drop additional spots to my group?

You can add additional spots to your group as long as the retreat is not full. The best way to find out is to open your Snowbird Account and see if there are any remainings spots open for the retreat. However, you’ll want to only register spots that you’re certain you’ll need. The deposit is non-refundable.
