Gospel-Driven Youth Retreats

Snowbird offers weekend and weeklong programming for students and adults throughout the entire year. Carrying the same philosophy as our summer camp programs, Snowbird Conferences and Retreats challenge and refresh students and adults through the exposition of scripture and personal relationships, while providing premier high-adventure recreation. We want to offer more than just a “camp experience.” Presenting nearly a dozen intentional retreat and conference options, we want to see students changed, marriages healed, ministry leaders renewed and churches equipped to raise up generations eager to carry the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

Student Retreats at Snowbird

Everything at SWO points to the Gospel of Jesus. To do so, Snowbird offers year-round retreats and conferences designed for middle schoolers, high schoolers, and college students. Our staff and teaching team will challenge students through expositional preaching and relevant breakout sessions, while intentionally fostering personal relationships using small group meetings and shared experiences.

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.

Fall Retreats | September

Snowbird fall youth retreats include 4 main teaching sessions and small group meetings—spread throughout Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning. Your students will meet, digest expositional Bible teaching, and work through the day-to-day aspects of following Jesus. We also like to play—really hard. Your students will have plenty of high-ropes recreation on Friday night and Saturday afternoon.

“The staff working with us adapted to my students really well, changing how they ran share groups throughout the week to be able to make their interactions with my students more engaging.” – Matthew Acree

Winter Retreats | December – February

Planning a winter youth ministry trip can be overwhelming. Planning food, lodging, and a worship band leaves little room to build relationships. We drop the logistical hassle by partnering with student pastors to reach their goals. We will plan everything for you so you can enjoy the weekend—and your students will build relationships that point to Christ. Small group leaders will partner with your church on a close staff-to-student ratio, making sure plenty of time to process the teaching they sit under.

“The Scriptures were exposited in a way that the students could understand and keep up with, while also not watering down the text at all. The Gospel saturated every bit of the teaching and worship.” – JT Overby

Spring Retreats | March

Our spring youth retreats are packed with four main teaching sessions and small group meetings—spread through Friday night to Sunday morning. Your students will meet, digest expositional Bible teaching, and work through the day-to-day aspects of following Jesus.

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.
