Kids’ MTB Skill Camps

These 3-day camps are a great way to introduce youth to the basics of cross country, downhill and bike park riding together with learning to care and tune their bike, and understanding proper riding etiquette. What better way to spend a week in summer than meeting new friends, learning new techniques and building skills for years of biking pleasure.

Two camps are available this year. Our Kids’ Beginner Camp, running July 11-13, is for kids aged 6 to 10, and is geared to learning basic off-road riding skills. Our Advanced Riding Camp, running July 25-27, delivers advanced riding skills to youths 11–15 years of age.

Camps run from 10am to 3pm daily.
