5th – 6th Grade Expedition Mountain Biking Camp
Our weeklong biking expedition camp is designed for entering 5th – 6th graders who have mountain biking experience and are excited to shred on backcountry trails. This program will support campers to continue building a solid foundation of riding, technical skills, and knowledge of bike maintenance. A four-day journey into the Rocky Mountain town of Crested Butte and Gunnison, expedition mountain biking will transform young mountain bikers into self-assured, self-reliant trail shredders.
Campers spend their first and last night camping on site at Mt. Evans. The first full day is spent preparing for their journey, getting to know their fellow travelers as they learn tips for packing, planning and navigating on their trip. They’ll also get familiar with their biking equipment, making sure all the gear they need for their trail-riding adventures is present and ready for action.
After four days of base-camping outside Gunnison, exploring, cooking, and honing their cycling skills on a variety of riding trails in Crested Butte and Gunnison, plus an afternoon of mini golf, climbing, and trampolines at Crested Butte Adventure Park, campers will return to Mt. Evans for our closing ceremony to wrap up the week and celebrate their success. We highly encourage campers to bring their personal mountain bike from home to increase their comfort level on the trails, otherwise we offer a limited number of Specialized Fuse bikes for rent for $50.
