About Snow-Camp

Snow-Camp is an innovative youth charity that uses a unique combination of skiing, snowboarding and life-skills programmes to support inner-city young people.

Through the combination of snowsports and life-skills, our programmes enable young people to grow in confidence and self esteem, develop as individuals and make positive choices for their lives.

Snow-Camp programmes also enable young people to reflect on the key issues impacting their day to day lives, and help them develop new skills to support their futures – particularly towards careers in the snowsport industry.

Snow-Camp has grown steadily from 2003 and now works with at least 400 young people each year across 12 London Boroughs. Our vision is to expand Snow-Camp to other cities across the UK and bring the success of our approach to benefit many more inner-city young people.
