Freeride Mountain Bike Skills Camp

Our Freeride Program will offer two Mountain Bike Skills camps summer 2018.  Both camps are co-ed and can accommodate beginner to advanced riders ages 8 and up. These camps are designed to give your child the skills necessary to get out on the trails.  There will be a lot of fun drills, obstacle courses and challenges, but very little trail riding.  Camps are from 9am to 5pm.

July 25 & 26 - Wednesday & Thursday - Beginner Bike Skills Camp

August 7& 8 - Tuesday & Wednesday - Intermediate Bike Skills Camp

Cost for each camp is $200. There is room for 12 riders each camp with a minimum of 5 riders needed.  Please register by 5 pm the day before as camps do fill up.  Early registration is recommended.  Coaches and vehicles are insured by JHSC.  Please read our Camp Refund Policy.
