Newt 1/2 Day Mountain Bike Camp Details
Below is a sample schedule of a typical day, along with a listing of skills that will be covered, and on/off bike activities that campers may experience. Each registered participant will receive email correspondence two weeks prior to the event with a detailed daily schedule and a list of “what to bring.”
Note to parents: This is a parent cooperative camp. You are lucky enough to join us for two out of five days of fun! (We will do a registration of those days when we get close to our camp session) You are also “in charge” of leading a parent-led activity during one time slot to build community and pride.
