Winsport will not be offering lift access for camps this summer. We will be utilizing the Skills Centre and the terrain in the Paskapoo trail networks, located east of our site.

Our summer mountain bike programs are designed to get your child back outside and on the trails! These multi-week programs will strengthen your rider's overall mountain biking skills, endurance and knowledge. At WinSport we've got a campus that offers a diversity of terrain that allows riders to experience it all. Please note our program offering has been reduced this summer and we only have specific levels available. Please read our level descriptions and prerequisites carefully before registering.

 

Gear Gang

Ages 6-8 // Level 2, 3, & 4

Our mountain bike camps will get your child stoked to be outside! Children in our programs learn to build a strong foundation of riding skills, endurance, and mountain biking knowledge. Your young rider will challenge themselves with fun terrain and features, as well as a variety of skill building games & tactics to fine tune their riding. By the end of the week, your child will be a passionate and dedicated mountain biker.

Participants will have the opportunity to experience our skills centre and develop valuable skills required in all areas of biking. Children will also explore a variety of exciting Cross Country and Enduro trail loops in the Paskapoo trail network where they will be exposed to different features and challenges. Register your child into one of three levels and get them ready to spend the day outside on their bike with one of our passionate instructors. Aside from breaking for hydration, nutrition, and equipment maintenance your child will be on the trails all day.
