Dominate jumps, rip through dirt, and hammer around roots and rocks just like the pros! Technical trickery, jumps, and drops are just some of the skills we work on in this camp. Each day starts off with skill builders and ends with trail rides. We’ll do a hands-on fix-a-flat class and play bike games. Half a day will be spent learning about stewardship and trail maintenance techniques. Be sure to come prepared for lots of fun! Groups will be split by age and ability.
