What is Snowball?


            -        Snowball is a teen-directed and staffed organization that will take you on a three-day overnight trip    

            -        Snowball helps you develop self-awareness and esteem through making positive choices

            -        Snowball will help you be a leader and have healthy relationships 

            -        Snowball is a program that will assist you in understanding the reward of keeping an ATOD 

                (alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs) free lifestyle


What do you do at Snowball?


            -        Snowball is a retreat at a Camp in Illinois that goes from Thursday to Saturday

            -        The retreat is in a comfortable setting without judgments and with lots of laughter

            -        You will realize that lots of amazing people in high school are also ATOD free and make healthy decisions

            -        You will make friends that will last forever

            -        You will get to hang out and have fun with people from both South and Central!
