Mountain Biking Camp Greenwood Village - 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 Denver’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—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: We strongly encourage campers to use their own bikes. We provide bikes and helmets for all campers who do not have a bike or choose not to use their own bike. 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 reserve the right to move a camper to a different program (if space is available) or remove the camper from the group and offer a credit.

Kristen Wenzel

Growing up in Texas, I was encouraged to explore the outdoors, especially when I started attending overnight summer camp in elementary school. The summers were filled with outdoor adventures from hiking to canoeing through the Pine and Cypress trees. Into high school, I worked as a counselor and began to see the bigger picture of the benefits for summer camps of all kinds! Attending various camps throughout the summers contains some of my fondest memories growing up. It feels natural to be outside, embracing the elements and challenging yourself while having fun! Working in the outdoors has humbled me to appreciate the life we have on this planet and we can share these experiences through amazing adventures. As a part of the generation that was introduced to technology at a young age, I noticed my time in the outdoors diminished as the popularity of devices grew. As an adult, I was reintroduced to the outdoors through hiking and I aim to continue to bridge the gap between technology use and the outdoor life with kids today. Through the opportunity to work with kids we have the potential to be a positive influence in their process to help them to achieve their highest potential!

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blue’s 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 Clue’s 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.
