We work through the hiring process as soon as an application is submitted. This means that you will hear of your hiring status before or by the deadline of March 6; each application and hiring is unique so the hiring timetable will be different for everyone. What this means for you — Don’t wait for the deadline to submit your application.

Get it done as soon as possible!  We hope that this will get people excited to complete their applications and we can start getting prepared for this upcoming season of ministry together!


“You feel encouraged because it has nothing to do with you at all, it’s all about placing other people before yourself.” – Christiaan

“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

Summer Camp Staff Application

The 2023 Summer Camp staff application opens on September 16, 2022. 

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 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 12 consecutive weeks. Staff will participate in two weeks of training, followed by 10 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.

Contact Jake Schwarting to discuss any questions or inquiries related to applying for the SWO Staff.
