Young People: Get Involved


Snow-Camp is a youth charity providing disadvantaged young people from London's inner-city areas with the chance to experience mountain sports. As well as offering the opportunity to learn to ski or snowboard during a week's stay in the French Alps and intensive two day courses on dry slopes and snowdomes in the UK, Snow-Camp also includes a Life-Skills course designed to enable young people to reflect on the key issues that impact their lives.

We need your support to continue to offer the Snow-Camp experience to more inner-city young people. If you would like to get involved, there are range of ways you can give from one-off donations, regular giving or through the bursary programme. Our website provides further details of all these options, and enables you to safely give online. Alternatively if you represent a company, please consider our range of sponsorship options. Or you can help by giving your time and skills to Snow-Camp through our Volunteer Programme.

If you are a young person 16+ who has been on a Snow-Camp, you probably want to make the most of your new skiing and boarding skills. Afterall, if you don't use it you lose it!

Did you know that the UK boasts 375 days of wintersports on 43 indoor/artificial slopes? Did you know that there are always freestyle events to attend, calls for DJs, performers and artists? There are even seasonal jobs in the UK ski industry that might be perfect for you.

Here are a few websites and events that are either associated with us or with our friends in the business. If you want to strap on a board or click into a pair of skis - get involved and remember to give a shout out to your friends at SNOW-CAMP!
