Operation Snowball is a weekend experience provided for teens to build confidence, help them be a positive influence on each other, share accurate information for decisions about their lives and "help healthy kids stay healthy." Peer leadership is emphasized. A portion of the program always includes information about use, misuses and abuse of alcohol and drugs. Many other topics of current concerns to students are discussed. The program consists of four days at Camp Manitoqua in Frankfort. Operation Snowball has been offered at H-F since 1981.
