A Snow-Camp Bursary will support the inner-city young people we work with, by covering the full costs of their participation in our snowsports programmes. It will be used to help them achieve a snowsports qualification and employment in the snow sports industry.
The bursary scheme focuses on funding places on our programmes which are taken up by small independent or voluntary youth projects which have very low funding capacity. It also funds inner-city young people who are not attached to a youth programme, but who through their own initiative have found out about Snow-Camp.
How will my bursary donation help?
Each full Snow-Camp bursary of £2,000 enables one young person to move through the full programme journey from end to end over one life changing year. Starting at the beginner programme Snow-Camp London where they will ski or snowboard for the first time, progressing through the Graduate and Italy programmes and finishing with our Excel Programme, giving the opportunity to secure a Ski or Snowboard Instructor qualification and employment opportunities in the snowsports industry. Your bursary covers the full cost of attending all Snow-Camp courses and residentials for the young person(s) you are supporting, along with a percentage for ongoing Snow-Camp management and admin, helping the charity as a whole.
As a bursary scheme supporter, you will receive regular Snow-Camp updates and feedback about the progress of the young people benefitting from the bursary scheme, recognition on the Snow-Camp website and VIP invitations to Snow-Camp events.
Current bursary places have been generously provided by Dare 2b, the Myles Robinson Memorial Trust, The Starr Trust, The Salters Charitable Trust , The Miles Kemp Trust and Ski Safari. To read about these bursaries and the young people they support, please click here.

I learnt through skiing that if I say I can do something, and then put my mind to it, then nothing is impossible!
