Snow-Camp are the UK's only charity using a unique combination of skiing, snowboarding, education and vocational opportunities to support and empower inner-city young people. We play a key role in motivating and inspiring young people from communities with high levels of deprivation, enabling them to gain qualifications and to develop key life-skills.
We are passionate about providing an alternative approach to engage young people by providing an energising environment at artificial ski slopes in the UK in order for them to build relationships and gain employment. Our programmes require initiative, individuality and courage and therein lies the attraction and challenge providing a much-needed complimentary service to youth organisations working closely with those in local authority care, in the youth justice system and excluded from education.
We work with 800+ young people nationally each year. In 2018, 91% of our young people, who completed our programmes, moved on to either employment, training or further education.
Our Programmes run in 4 regions nationally, allowing us to reach as many young people as we can, helping to turn their lives around through snowsports.
If you are a young person that is part of a youth organisation or work with young people aged 13-21, based in the Midlands area, and would like to join us on our Midlands Programmes please get in touch with Midlands Programme Manager Chris on 0771 932 9732 or at Chris@snow-camp.org.uk.
