Gain the tools you need to significantly impact student success and help all students develop the skills and capacities they need to succeed and lead in the 21st century.
This highly interactive five-day professional development program brings together district- and school-wide teams of teachers, administrators, students and business/community members with renowned leaders in the fields of education and systems thinking.
Come to Camp Snowball to:
Improve and practice your organizational learning and systems thinking skills.
Learn how they support educational decisions and systems on all levels – from classroom to district.
Share with and learn from colleagues from districts of all sizes from around the country, esteemed faculty, your team, and with leading thinkers in education and systems thinking.
Participate in transformational discussions about difficult topics, such as equity and privilege, with a wide range of community constituents.
Develop plans to scale your work so you can meet the needs of all learners in your school and district.
Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization, is the Co-host of Camp Snowball.
The Strength of Teams
Teams build critical mass and local capacity by substantially increasing the impact of participation. They improve the likelihood that new approaches will be adopted on a wider basis by the home district or school.
Engaging community organizations and businesses both in underwriting a district’s Camp Snowball participation and also by attending, increases the success of implementing new systemic and classroom approaches developed at Camp Snowball. This kind of on-the-ground support creates additional commitment to this work for the future.
