Ages 6 - 8 / Levels 2, 3, 4

Explore endless terrain, try new features and develop important riding skills in our fun week long camps.

Check out the Skills Centre or explore our endless network of trails and chairlift terrain. Riders will be clenching their handlebars with excitement as they tear it up on two wheels.

Register your child into one of three levels today. Aside from breaks for water, snacks, or basic bike repair, we will be on the trails the entire time.
By the end of the program your child will be itching to go ride again and show off their new skills.

All camps are 7 hours in duration.
