The sun may be shining but for 7-15 year-olds in search of active fun during the holidays, summer definitely isn’t the time to pack away the skis or snowboard!

For just like Britain’s top skiers and snowboarders, who use the likes of Snow Factor Braehead west of Glasgow city centre to prepare for their 2018/2019 World Cup season, the long holidays are also the perfect opportunity for children to enjoy the snow.

From week commencing 2 July through until w/c 6 August inclusive, Snow Factor Braehead, Scotland’s only indoor real snow sports facility is running its popular 5-day (Monday-Friday) summer camps.

Targeted at 7-15 year-old boys and girls, the fun-filled, full-day camps (830am-5pm) promise to keep the kids active and safe as they learn or hone their ski / snowboarding skills in classes overseen by expert instructors.

Whether a complete beginner (rookie ski / rookie board) or a talented young snowboarder (freestyle board) and hot shot skier (pro ski) there are classes at all levels designed to develop the skills and confidence of kids (see dates below).

What’s more, with drop-off from 830am (pick up 5pm) the summer camps are an excellent childcare solution for working parents.

The camps cost £299 per person (member discount 15% / sibling discount 10%) and include instruction, all technical equipment, snacks, refreshments, lunch and selected off-slope afternoon activities within Soar Intu Braehead.

Penny Dunn, Business Development Manager for Ice Factor Group, commented: “Snow Factor has run its children summer camps for the past six years.  They are extremely popular, giving the children the opportunity to make friends and progress their skiing or snowboarding on real snow with an expert instructor in a safe and fun environment.

“There’s never a dull moment for the kids at summer snow camp while the parents can plan their working week knowing their kids are enjoying a full-day of active fun and progressing their ski and snowboarding prowess for the season ahead!”
