Snow-Camp are one of the UK’s most innovative charities dedicated to turning young lives around with the power of snowsports. Since 2003, Snow-Camp have been harnessing the power of snowsports to change the lives of many of the UK’s most underprivileged inner-city young people by increasing motivations and aspirations, positively challenging attitudes, developing key life-skills and enabling young people to gain qualifications and employment in the snowsports industry and beyond.
With programmes running nationally at indoor ski slopes across the UK, Snow-Camp are committed to breaking down barriers, broadening horizons, raising aspirations and setting young people up to go on to any other positive destination in life. On completion of the full Snow-Camp programme journey which includes a life-changing week in the mountains and a snowsports instructor qualification, young people stay actively involved as volunteers or progress on to Snow-Camp’s award-winning apprenticeship programme – both helping to inspire the next generation coming through the Snow-Camp programmes.
Now in this brand-new decade, Snow-Camp are expanding their programmes to impact thousands more inner-city young people right across the UK, and Chel-Ski are proud to be one of their premium industry partners.
If you feel inspired and want to get involved, the Snow-Camp team would love to hear from you. With over 76% of young people saying that there’s a clear link between a lack of positive opportunities and falling in to crime or anti-social behaviour, we know Snow-Camp’s work is needed more than ever, and your support can make all the difference. Whether you’d like to make a one-off or regular donation, take on a fundraising challenge, host a fundraising event or explore getting your company involved, please do get in touch with Snow-Camp.
