CAMP DETAILS

We’ve included a sample of activities and skills to be covered during the camp week. Our coaches blend activities both on and off the bike to make the most out of each day. Our goal throughout the week is to enable each camper to improve their individual skills and to end the session with more confidence in their ability. We take pride in sharing our love for mountain biking and hope to steward a life long passion in our campers.
