2024 PURITY RETREAT FOR STUDENTS
Pure & Holy
February 9-11, 2024
Some people will say that to be holy, means to be “set apart” but it is much more than that. It requires us to strive to be like Jesus in all that we think and do. Holiness is one of those characteristics of God that He shares with us. If you are in Christ then you are “positionally” holy, which means that when God looks at you He sees the righteousness and purity of his son, Jesus Christ. But as we live out this life on earth in the flesh we must still strive for the holiness that He has indeed granted to us. The battle we fight every day is to be holy in our thoughts and actions.
This weekend is focused on what it looks like to pursue purity and holiness as single people who are striving to be faithful to the Lord. Join us this weekend as we help apply the truths from Scripture. By His Spirit and through His Word, He has given us everything we need for life and godliness.
“Very satisfied with the relational aspect Snowbird brings to each group and investment in students on a personal level.”
“There is nowhere else that I know of that has teaching as sound and equips staff to engage students on such a personal level.”
“We were very impressed with your staff! The college-age staff you have on hand were great and very well trained. We were impressed by their spiritual maturity as well.”

What is does a Snowbird purity retreat look like?
This weekend includes solid biblical teaching, Gospel-focused worship, high-adventure recreation, and small groups with your best friends.
What recreation do you provide?
Recreation will include our on-campus recreation options, like our climbing tower, aerial park, zip line, 3-man swing, archery tag, basketball court, and paintball course.
What types of housing do you provide?
We have over 14 cabins on our campus, 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 primarily functional.
You’ll need to provide your own bedding, pillow and towels. One of our 4 bathhouses is always a short walk from each cabin.
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.
