How do you prepare future leaders for the challenges and opportunities they will encounter in school? In their careers? In life? You use tools and approaches that develop 21st century skills…
…and make sure that students are right there with the adults. Engaged. Learning together.Learning by doing.
This is camp, so don’t expect to stay in a classroom. There are mountains to climb and rivers to discover.
Is it fun? Yeah, it’s fun!

Join teams of educators, students, and business and community leaders at Camp Snowball to explore how to build everyone’s capacity for learning and leading in the 21st century. While it’s impossible to predict what students will need to know, we can provide opportunities for learning how to enable all students to think deeply and critically, manage high complexity, work collaboratively, communicate effectively, and achieve academically. In short to prepare them for their future. All students, including those who are facing acheivement gaps, whether racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic, must have their needs met academically, socially and emotionally. Deepen your own learning in this fun, engaging, and practical professional development opportunity. Co-hosted by Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization—and a team of experienced faculty and staff—we’ll work together to prepare students—our future leaders—for the roles they will step into in tomorrow’s organizations and world. A growing number of school systems have found that by integrating the tools and techniques of systems thinking, organizational learning, and education for sustainability, they can accelerate the development of leadership, teaching, and learning capacities. At Camp Snowball, young people and adults will participate together in a rich array of workshops. And because adults interact with students at camp, they can see how valuable and relevant students find these tools and approaches directly. The energy and enthusiasm is snowballing! Don’t miss out.
We’re looking carefully at our environmental impact. Camp Snowball is striving to minimize our waste–and–thanks to the generous sponsorship by Soil & More, we’re offsetting our carbon footprint.
