This four-day summer camp is a fun course in mountain biking essentials. We start with the ABCs—safety, braking, and balance. But we go way beyond that. Your young rider will learn specific skills like how to tackle small obstacles, ride over roots and rocks, and even start learning some basic climbing techniques.
Our experienced PMBIA-certified coaches, backed by our 15 years of running youth camps, will guide them through targeted drills. Think of it like a mini-bootcamp for bike skills. We'll use games to teach them how to shift their weight for better balance, how to pick the best lines on a trail for a smoother ride, and how to brake effectively without skidding.
By the end of the four days, your kid won't just be more comfortable on a bike; they'll be navigating green trails with a newfound confidence. They'll understand how to handle different terrains and will have a toolkit of techniques to tackle more challenging trails as they progress. Plus, they'll have a bunch of new riding buddies to hit the trails with.
So, if you're looking for a summer camp that packs in skill-building with a whole lot of fun, this is it. Your young rider will not only learn the ropes but will be stoked to take on new biking challenges.
