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. The young might be failing in school, or have dropped out altogether, they might have committed juvenile crimes and now struggle to find employment or they’re on a negative life-path and need support to change their direction. They could also, simply, just need someone to believe in them.
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. However, 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 snowsport centres in the UK.
Our 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 are committed to being able to effectively justify the positive impact of our programmes. We have implemented an evaluation framework to capture the impact of our activities on the young people we work with and at the end of each programme year we quantify our outcomes. At the end of the 2016/17 programme year, we found that our work had a transformational impact on the young people who completed our Programme Journey.
