Snow Camp is a life changing snow-sports programme for young people across the UK who are all in need of support. Some suffer from poor self-esteem, mental health struggles or are having a difficult time at home and/or at school. Snow Camp is a lifeline providing vital opportunities and support to those who need it the most.
In January 2023, we took a group of young Snow Camp apprentices out to the mountains to give them a taste of life working as a seasonaire.
What is Snow Camp:
✔️ Working at indoor snow domes, young people learn how to ski or snowboard alongside life skills training, qualifications and mental health support.
✔️ As part of their training young people also experience the mountains for the very first time on an annual residential.
✔️ After a year of hard work they spend a week in the mountains shadowing instructors and gaining valuable snow experience.
Working with Snow Camp:
We are working with Snow Camp, who offer a life changing snow sports programme for young people, to help break down barriers and broaden the horizons for young people in the UK. We are committed to:
✔️ Annual UK Apprentice from Snow Camp.
✔️ Assisting with webinars, workshops and courses to help qualify snow camp apprentices to be able to work a season in the mountains as a chalet host, chef or childcare nanny.
✔️ Hold follow up sessions on-line to provide details on courses available.
