Snowball 2020
Start a Snowball

Overview

What Happens at a Snowball Retreat?

For Fall 2020, Snowball will be a 3 evening Zoom conference. The weekend will include Large Group presentation, workshops and small groups for discussions.

Each Snowball weekend is planned by teen directors and a teen staff (with adult staff), who know the issues facing teens today. It is an opportunity to find out what others think about the things that are important to teenagers. Every activity has a learning objective that builds on their inner strength and self-awareness to expand their perspective on life.

How Will Students Use What They Learned in Snowball in Their Lives?

“The self-assurance I acquired at Snowball and the healthy plan I chose, were put to the test in college, and even more when I joined a fraternity. However, the Snowball experiences taught me to step back before I acted, and to have confidence in myself to make smart decisions in spite of ribbing.”  A former Snowball participant

“Personally, I am certain my relationship with my wife is stronger because of the social and communications skills I learned in Snowball.  Professionally, as a school counselor, Snowball is at the root of everything I do.” Past Snowball participant and leader

Who attends Snowball?

Snowball is for all high school students in Districts 203 and 204 who would enjoy having fun while making friends in a positive, affirming environment where teens are able to talk with each other about issues important to them.

What is Family Day?

Families are an important part of the lives of our Snowball participants and as such parents will receive a packet of information regarding the event and ways to connect with their teens.

Snowball is a great place to:

  • Make new friends
  • Play games, jump rope, be on stage, and be heard
  • Participate in small group experiences
  • Discover something about yourself
  • Learn about things teens have in common, as well as all the ways that you are unique
  • Learn about ways you can impact other teens and younger students
