“The biggest thing for me was the community. I had never experienced a body of believers like that ever before. They were so intent on pursuing the Gospel and pushing each other towards the Lord. When I came here, and people were growing, and learning, and maturing, it was unlike anything I had ever seen before. The friendships I built in that one summer are still my closest today, years later.” – Caroline

Each summer, Snowbird Outfitters hires approximately 120 adults, college-age and older, to help operate our summer program. These staff members work alongside church groups, lead student small groups, work recreation, serve meals, clean campus, and participate in a variety of worship services and camp activities.

A Summer Staffer’s main responsibility throughout each week is to invest in the students to which they are “assigned.” Each week, SWO hosts dozens of churches from around the country. Each staff member will be assigned to a specific church group for the duration of the week to build relationships with and invest in their students. That staff member will pursue relationships with those students throughout each day, eating meals together, going to breakout sessions, hanging out during free time, and participating in small group time, with the driving force of a God-centered love and a passion to participate in Gospel-centered discipleship and evangelism.

Snowbird’s Summer Staff commitment is for 13 consecutive weeks. Staff will participate in two weeks of training, followed by 11 weeks of camp.

Summer Staff applications are available each winter. Ask about earning college internship credit when you apply!

Note: Must be at least one year out of high school and 18 years of age to apply.
