Colorado Adventure Guides is thrilled to offer our Youth Mountain Biking Camp this Summer! Our camp will consist of half-day (4 hour) sessions spanning one week in length (M-F). Throughout the duration of the camp instructors will help participants practice fundamentals of mountain biking such as bike and body positioning, shifting, braking, steering, climbing, descending and more, but ultimately a goal of having FUN!
This youth mountain biking camp will consist of a hybrid of skills sessions and on-trail application to help kids develop a solid foundation of skills to take with them on the rest of their mountain biking journey. This camp will be held in and throughout the Summit County area with common areas being around the Town of Breckenridge and the Frisco Peninsula Trail System. Topics will include but not be limited to bike/body positioning, braking, gear shifting, climbing and descending techniques, and more! All participants should feel comfortable riding a bike and be familiar with braking and steering.
Our Youth Mountain Biking Camp is a week long camp (M-F) with an AM and PM session each day. AM sessions will be for riders ages 6-9 years old, PM sessions will be for riders ages 10-13 years old.
Prerequisites: All participants should feel comfortable riding a bike and be familiar with braking and steering. Please see the following equipment list below;
Here at Colorado Adventure Guides our goal is to provide a safe and inclusive learning environment where kids can meet other kids to ride and have fun with! Kids learn best when they’re supported, encouraged, and also inspiring each other! We want to make sure to instill in them a passion that can lead them to into a lifelong journey with mountain biking. Our goal is to help each child learn and improve their skills in mountain biking, safety, and having fun in doing so. We also encourage and strive to open up their world for exploration, confidence, and respect for our mountains, trails, and natural landscape.
