Giving young people from inner-city communities across the UK positive futures through snowsports.

London Ski & Snowboard Festival

National Youth Charity

Snow-Camp, the UK’s only charity using a combination of snowsports, life-skills training and mental wellbeing support to help young people from inner-city communities.

Working at the indoor snow centres in London, North West, Midlands and Scotland, Snow-Camp also provide qualifications, work experience and volunteering opportunities to those who would never normally get the chance to access the snowsports industry.

Their programmes require initiative, individuality and courage.

Therein lies the attraction and challenge, by 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.

For every hour on the slopes the same amount of time is spent in Snow-Camp’s life-skills sessions which have been planned to help young people reflect upon the skills they are demonstrating whilst learning to ski or snowboard – perseverance, commitment, listening, patience and overcoming fear as well as learning how to respond to challenges, deal with peer pressure and setting goals for their future. All of which are essential skills young people need to deal with the problems they may face in their everyday lives. Young people also have access to bespoke mental health workshops and 1-1 counselling sessions, which are delivered by registered counsellors.

Snow-Camp raise vital funds for their life-changing programmes in several ways, including through their snowsports fundraising event called the Courmayeur Classic. Find out more here.

We are delighted to be charity partner of the London Ski & Snowboard Festival. Events like this enable us to spread the word about out vital work supporting young people, while building relationships with businesses from across the industry. We are looking forward to exhibiting at the event, which is set to be a fantastic weekend of fun and new experiences! Thank you to the London Ski & Snowboard Festival team for asking us to be charity partner, we’re so grateful to have your support.
