UPDATE: May 12, 2020

We've been hoping and hoping to #savethesummer . . .

Now, after much discussion, planning, and re-planning, we have decided that we just can't safely run Snow Farm Summer this year. Unfortunately, there is still too much uncertainty about the management of the COVID-19 pandemic to feel confident that we could offer a safe environment for students coming from all over the country to a residential campus.

We know that Snow Farm Summer means so much to those of you who are returning, and others of you have been anticipating a new and exciting creative learning experience. For all of you, and for us, we've been looking forward to July for many months. We know that people are making a lot of sacrifices right now; we're sad and sorry that losing a summer at Snow Farm has to be one of them.

Check back in 2021!
