What We Do

Who We Support

Snow-Camp work with a range of young people, aged 13-21, across the UK.

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.

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. 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.

First Tracks

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

More Info

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.

More Info

Excel

Supporting young people who wish to pursue a career in the snowsports industry and achieve a Level 1 Instructor qualification. Young people train for 10 weeks, which includes a one week residential trip.

Apprenticeships

Employment for 1 year at Snow-Camp, which includes snowsports industry work placements with snowsports industry partners and an NVQ in Activity Leadership.

Our Impact

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.
