DNOW at Snowbird

March 4-6, 2022 | April 8-10, 2022

If you’re like us, you’re tired of chasing down the newest Christian band, hyped-up event, or big-name speaker. Biblical teaching and personal relationships with other believers drive long-term spiritual growth. That’s why DNOW events exist at SWO. Our team packs your event with biblical preaching, high-ropes recreation, and small groups. Your students will experience a Gospel-driven weekend that helps them look past the craziness of life—and fix their eyes on Jesus.

Snowbird DNOW events are built to give your youth group space to connect with each other, interact in small groups, and worship Jesus. And, we’ll play really hard.

2022 | Contending For The Faith (Jude)

We are living in a society and culture that is in total opposition to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What makes it even worse is that there are many people in our churches, even in church leadership that want to make Christianity so cool and popular to the culture that they are compromising the truth. This was true in the New Testament time period and is still true today. Jude calls us today to fight for the faith against all enemies of the truth, whether they be in culture or within the church walls.

Contending For The Faith (Jude)

“The teaching was excellent. The topic was hit on well in every lesson.”


“As a student pastor, I like that Snowbird doesn’t try to capitalize on the emotions of students… but carry the teachings over into small groups so the staff has the opportunity to get real with kids in person.”


“SWO is intentional in their commitment to meet students where they are with the Gospel! This by far is the best experience for students and adults in the South!”

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 just 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.
