Snow-Camp have been successfully supporting young people since 2003. Last year the young people we worked with transformed their lives.
Motivating young people to fully engage is the key to successful youth work and the young people we work with are traditionally hard to engage. We have found that snowsports are incredibly attractive to inner-city young people, despite being out-of-reach for many. The opportunity to participate in snowsports acts as the tool with which we can effectively engage young people and maintain a positive involvement with them. This is achieved through our Programme Journey, which takes place at artificial and indoor snowsports centres in the UK.
Snow-Camp’s programmes run from July-June each year. All young people must start at the beginning on First Tracks and have no prior snowsports experience.
We run programmes in London, Scotland, the Midlands and the North West.
I love the way Snow-Camp uses my sport to support young people who wouldn't ever get the chance to get involved in snowsports – and beyond that, to enable them to get qualifications and access to employment in the snowsports industry. I’m so honoured to be on board as a patron.Jenny Jones Sochi 2014 Olympic Bronze Medallist and Snow-Camp Patron
Snow-Camp is a fantastic charity helping those from deprived backgrounds do something positive. People say snowsports are for the elite, and rowing has that reputation too. Snow-Camp proves this is not necessarily the case.Sir Steve Redgrave 5x Olympic Gold Medallist and Snow-Camp Ambassador
I’m delighted to support the important work that Snow-Camp carries out, and I’m completely behind their goal to bring skiing to more young people and to make the sport more socially inclusive.Graham Bell BBC Presenter and Snow-Camp Patron
Snow-Camp train an individual to be able to control certain aspects of behaviour, to channel negative energy into positive energy and create the overall outcome of someone who could work in the same industry as me. That is one reasons why I choose to support Snow-Camp.Warren Smith Professional Free Skier, Director of the Warren Smith Academy and Snow-Camp Patron
I love that Snow-Camp brings winter sports to a whole new audience of young people who never thought that they would have the opportunity! I have always strived to make skiing available to all and Snow-Camp is really achieving that.Chemmy Alcott 4X British Olympic Skier, TV Presenter and Snow-Camp Patron
