Mountain Biking Camp Castle Rock - 2nd to 7th - Day Camp

Campers experience the thrill of mastering mountain biking as they hit the trails in our Mountain Biking Day Camp. With help from our seasoned instructors, campers spend the week practicing mountain biking skills, learning bicycle maintenance basics and traversing the terrain of some of Castle Rock’s best beginner parks and trails.

Our campers’ adventures are carefully customized so they progress as their comfort and skill level grows. We also group kids by grade range—2nd – 4th graders in our Skills Camp, 5th – 7th graders on the Adventure Team—to be sure they’re in good company as they build confidence and further their mastery of mountain biking.

Please note: in order to register for this program, campers MUST be able to bike confidently without training wheels on a dirt surface. If a camper does not meet this minimum skill requirement, we may move them to a different program (if space is available) or we reserve the right to remove the camper from the group and offer a credit. While we strongly encourage campers to use their own bikes, we can provide bikes (and helmets) as needed.

Technical Skills

Trail Riding

Bike Maintenance

Campers learn how to properly fit a helmet and bike, practice basic bike commands and get comfortable with technical skills including bunny hops, track stands, braking and shifting, becoming more proficient riders as they take on incremental challenges.

We introduce campers to a range of parks and trails where they practice good trail etiquette as they learn to ride on rolling single and double track terrain, descending and ascending trail sections and narrow and winding trails.

Places We Go: TBD

When they’re not riding, campers get familiar with the nuts and bolts of bike maintenance, learning to safety check their bikes, solve gear problems and change flat tires.

MEET YOUR CAMP DIRECTOR

Nichole Searle

Nichole loves the natural curiosity of kids and their excitement to be outside. Seeing the thrill in kids’ faces when they learn to bike, climb or paddle is one of her favorite rewards, so it’s no wonder she finds working at Avid4 Adventure to be one of the best jobs ever. When last year’s camp season ended, she kept the adventures continuing in her household by building a rock climbing wall in her living room for her kids and friends!

Nichole has a degree in Family Science from Brigham Young University. While in college, she studied abroad in Mexico City, in the jungles of Guatemala and Belize, on an island on the second largest barrier reef, and lived with locals in the Yucatán peninsula. That kicked off a wanderlust that spread to her family, and all 7 are now advanced scuba certified and enjoy exploring under the sea. In her professional life, Nichole has worked with kids and teens for over 20 years and still volunteers at a girls’ camp she attended as a child.

When she isn’t directing summer camp for Avid4 Adventure, or striking out on a new outdoor adventure with her family, you can find Nichole singing, designing stained glass, or tinkering with her car while listening to her favorite car repair podcasts.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blues Clues? It was the most successful kids’ show of all time. Do you remember that book that your child insisted on reading over and over again? How could you forget it? Why was Blues Clues so successful and why did your child NEED to re-read that book? Because repetition promotes learning, growth, and empowerment.

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple weeks of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others.

WE TAKE SAFETY SERIOUSLY

While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
