montgomery county YOUTH CAMP **3 date options**
Youth riders between the ages of 8 and 14 looking to hone your mountain bike skills and build confidence on the bike, this is the camp for you! Based out of South Germantown Recreation Park, and more specifically the South Germantown Bike Park, camp attendees will have five days of expert instruction and the opportunity to ride several of the area's best trail networks. This camp is intended for intermediate level riders who have a solid base of cycling ability and are ready to spend more time riding and applying their mountain bike skills to more advanced trails.
Over the course of the week, campers will have the opportunity to experience many great trail networks and skill-building features. These will include, but are not limited to:
- Germantown Bike Park Pump Track
- Schaeffer Farms
- Portable Skills Park featuring Teeter Totters, Ladder Bridges, and "Rock Gardens"
- Black Hill Regional Park
After drop-off at South Germantown Recreational Park each morning, instructors will lead unique mountain bike skills drills, and then the trail riding begins! We will ride new trials some days while focusing on specific skills, and then revisit certain trails throughout the week to see just how much we've advanced and the progress everyone has made. We will stop to hydrate and stay fueled up as needed throughout the day, and take a good break for lunch.
