Ages 12 - 16 / Levels 3, 4

Spend the full week tackling technical downhill terrain, speedy descents and learning advanced skills! This camp is great for riders who are comfortable on a mountain bike, but new to riding a bike park. Our instructors focus on developing riders to go faster, hit larger features, and ride steeper terrain.

Accelerate Camp - Level 3

These camps are primarily Enduro driven, focused on providing a balance between single track cross-country and lift access flow trails.
