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.
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.

Snow-Camp Charity have a big impact on young people across the country. At the end of our last programme year we found that:
When Will became a victim of knife crime his fear of being attacked again crushed his motivation. Snow-Camp gave Will someone to turn to and something to focus on.
