What We Do

Who We Support

Snow-Camp Charity work with inner-city young people, aged 13-21, in London, Scotland, Bristol, Cardiff, the North West and the Midlands.

We work directly with youth projects and youth service providers to ensure that we are working with those who are most in need of our support to prevent and turn young people’s minds away from negative behaviour.

Our Programme Journey

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.

First Tracks

Providing young people with their first experience of snowsports combined with life-skills sessions over two action packed days.

Graduate

Enabling young people to further develop their snowsports skills over 6 weekends. Young people attend life skills sessions and work towards an ASDAN certificate in Sports and Fitness.

Excel
