About Camp Snowball

July 10 - 14 | Vernon, NJ
Camp Snowball is a summer “camp” experience that brings together teams of students, parents, educators, and business and community leaders to build everyone’s capacity for learning and leading in the 21st century.

Camp Snowball Objectives

  • To develop educators’ capacity for teaching and using systems thinking and/or education for sustainability in their classrooms
  • To empower students to become leaders in their schools and communities by exposing them to these powerful ways of thinking and acting
  • To develop local teams that are working to implement these tools and perspectives in their own school systems
  • To build community support for schools by engaging business and government leaders, educators, parents, students, and community members in jointly creating the conditions for ongoing innovation
  • To foster relationships and create long-term connections for regional, national, and international learning communities to continue this work beyond the conference
  • To learn directly from school systems and others who are accomplishing demonstrable, measurable results
  • To elevate awareness of the positive outcomes of these approaches locally, nationally, and internationally

Who Attends Camp Snowball

Individuals, school- and district-wide teams of all sizes are welcome. There are special discounts for teams of 8 or more. We encourage communities and school systems to put together diverse teams of 2-100 that include:

  • K-12 Teachers
  • District Administrators at all levels
  • School Administrators at all levels
  • Students
  • Parents
  • School Board Members
  • Community Members
  • Business and Government Leaders
  • Staff and Volunteers from Youth-Service Organizations

By building critical mass and building local capacity, a community can reinforce what’s learned at Camp Snowball and substantially increase the chance that new approaches will be adopted back in the district. Engage community organizations and businesses both in underwriting your participation and in participating at Camp Snowball. This kind of on-the-ground support creates additional commitment to this work for the future. Some partial scholarships will be available. Please complete the scholarship application here.
