Snow-Camp Success at Snowboxx

Snow-Camp team up with Snowboxx Festival to turn around the lives of 15 underprivileged inner-city young people!

For the final week of March 2019, Snow-Camp were welcomed as the official charity partner to Snowboxx Festival 2019 in stunning resort of Avoriaz (Portes Du Soleil).

Throughout the week and with the support of Snow-Camp mascot Jenny (named after Snow-Camp Patron and Winter Olympian Jenny Jones), team Snow-Camp had the awesome opportunity of connecting with over 4000 Snowboxxers and the next generation of Snow-Camp supporters. Aiming to raise the profile of our work with a new audience, whilst welcoming donations throughout the week to directly impact the lives of the young people Snow-Camp are supporting in 2019.

Together, through online and cash donations, the Snowboxx community raised over £1500 for Snow-Camp’s work which will make a great impact on the lives of inner-city young people in the UK. The funds raised will allow 15 new participants to join Snow-Camp this summer on our 2-day beginner First-Tracks programmes running this summer across the UK. It does not end there however. Now back at Snow-Camp HQ, the team are excited to be in talks with Snowboxx 2019 goers who want to take on fundraising challenges for Snow-Camp. This was one of the key aspects of being part of the festival and will allow the total figure for donations from the Snowboxx community to continue to grow until Snowboxx 2020.

Dan Keeley, Snowsports Community Manager at Snow-Camp said:

“For a charity such as Snow-Camp, our week at Snowboxx was invaluable. To connect with, and meet, so many new Snow-Camp supporters face-to-face and aid the growth of Snowboxx Festival in Avoriaz. The funds raised by the Snowboxx community will directly change the lives of young people attending our Programmes for the first time this summer, which simply wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. Not only that but given the dance-moves of our mascot Jenny, Snow-Camp are now firmly in the hearts & minds of all those who were lucky enough to say ‘we were there’ at Snowboxx 2019.”
