Kids Gravity Day Camp Program | Welch Village
Aug 24, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$60
The Kids Gravity Day Camp program is a 4-hour, fun-filled, day camp where kids ages 9-14 learn the fundamental skills of downhill mountain biking. Gravity day-campers will learn the basic skills of downhill mountain biking including: position & balance, braking, cornering, descending, cadence & more. Safety education will be the overlying principle in all mountain biking skills that are taught.
Kids will be placed into small groups according to age & experience. Instruction and riding will begin in the parking areas & skills park and eventually progress onto our green downhill trails. Our goal is to have all kids ride the chairlift during the camp at least once. if not several times during the camp. All kids are free to ride the rest of the day after the camp (all-day ticket included with camp fee).
Our MTB coaches are PMBI certified. Small groups will consist of a 4:1 student to coach ratio.
This camp is open to all kids age 9-14 who can ride a bike with confidence. Helmets are required. Knee/arm guards and gloves are highly recommended. Some off-road mountain biking experience recommended but not required.
Personal bike requirements:
All personal bikes must be functional mountain bikes. Front and back hand brakes are required with at least front-suspension.
