Snowball Plantation
Meet the Snowball Team
Snowball Plantation is the trading name of the York Scout Activity Centre, owned by The York Joint Scout Trust – registered charity 524835. The organisation is an independent charitable trust, with its own management committee, and the site is managed, staffed, and maintained entirely by volunteers [except a part-time cleaner for the lodge]. Working on a voluntary basis, Snowball further achieves the objective of providing inexpensive accommodation and facilities for Scouts, Guides and other users.
