Snow Camp. People are in a ski resort, wearing skiing gear.


Since 2003, Snow Camp has been turning young lives around with the power of snowsports. At the time their Founder, Dan Charlish, was working as a youth worker on an estate in Stockwell. He overheard his group saying, while playing a snowboarding Xbox game, that this was the closest they were ever going to get to snowsports. A snowboarder himself, Dan realised that snowsports could be the mechanism to bring about positive social change for young people. The shift from inner-city estate to the mountain environment was so extreme, that in itself created a response, broadening their horizons and raising their aspirations.


Through their fully accredited year-long programme delivered at indoor and artificial slopes across the UK, plus a life-changing week in the mountains, Snow Camp provide life skills, qualifications, and vocational opportunities for young people across the country who would never have access to snowsports otherwise.


Snow Camp’s unique combination of snowsports and youth development helps young people to feel inspired and empowered to boost confidence, self-esteem, and aspirations.


At Snow+Rock, we’re proud to join our partners Ski Club of Great Britain, The Snow Centre and Chill Factore in supporting Snow Camp’s inspirational work. 


Using the power of skiing and snowboarding to break down barriers and broaden horizons for thousands of underprivileged inner-city young people across the UK.

How can I support Snow Camp?

Join Snow+Rock in supporting Snow Camp’s amazing work by heading out to the AJ Bell 3 Valley Rally!


Dan Charlish, Snow Camp Founder and Director says, “The AJ Bell 3 Valley Rally has fast become Snow Camp’s biggest and best fundraising event in the Alps, raising vital funds to support our work and giving our fantastic teams a unique and fun challenge and an alpine experience to remember!


Following the huge success of the 2023 event, the Snow Camp team, our young people and many wonderful supporters will be returning to the stunning Le Fitz Roy Hotel in Val Thorens this coming April for another AJ Bell 3 Valley Rally. Everyone is welcome - we hope you can join us!”


The AJ Bell 3 Valley Rally will take place from 13th – 16th April 2024 in Val Thorens, Les 3 Vallées, France.


Teams of four will raise money for Snow Camp and compete over two full days (Sunday and Monday) by taking on multiple snowsports activities across the Val Thorens resort. This includes a biathlon, snowshoe hike, zip wire challenge, ski orienteering, team distance challenge and a downhill parallel slalom racing to finish.


The activities are only half the fun. Also included are themed après parties at Folie Douce and Le Fitz Roy hotel as well as luxury meals inspired by the mountains, prepared by Le Fitz Roy’s executive chef Jonas Noël.
