Advanced Mountain Biking Camp Wash Park - 4th to 7th - Day Camp

Campers take their mountain biking skills up a notch as they hit beautiful trails outside of Golden in our Advanced Mountain Biking Day Camp. Taught by our expert instructors, campers spend the session focusing on intermediate mountain biking skills such as cornering techniques, tackling drop-offs, riding through uphill obstacles, using manual pumping, and navigating challenging terrains like sand, steps, and rocks and more.

Advanced Mountain Biking campers should have fulfilled the prerequisites listed below. While we strongly encourage campers to use their own bikes, we can provide bikes (and helmets) as needed.

Advanced Mountain Biking Camp Prerequisites:

  • I have completed Avid4 Adventure’s Mountain Biking Single-sport Camp.
  • During the school year, I go mountain biking on my own, with family, friends, or a local riding group.
  • I can perform a pre-ride safety check on my bike.
  • I can demonstrate proper braking with hand brakes.
  • I have learned and can demo how to shift gears.
  • I can ride safely over rocky or sandy terrain.
  • I have learned and can demo how to ride uphill and downhill.

Please note: In order to register for this program, campers MUST be able to demonstrate the prerequisite skills listed above. If a camper does not meet these minimum skill requirements, 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. If you have questions about whether Advanced Mountain Biking Day Camp is right for your child, please give us a call at (720) 249-2412.

THE WEEK’S ADVENTURES

Technical Skills

Trail Riding

Bike Maintenance

Places We Go: Dawson Butte, Mt. Falcon Park, Elk Meadows Park, Meyer Ranch, Alderfer/Three Sisters Park

Campers learn how to take their mountain biking to the next level, with rugged terrain, technical obstacles, off camber trails, table top jumps, and much more. While observing environmental differences, riders will embrace new biking techniques and body positions, required to tackle these new landscapes.

Places We Go: Dawson Butte, Mt. Falcon Park, Elk Meadows Park, Meyer Ranch, Alderfer/Three Sisters Park

We take campers out to a range of advanced trails where they practice keeping momentum to climb hills and maintaining safe speed to roll over tricky downhill sections.

Places We Go: Dawson Butte, Mt. Falcon Park, Elk Meadows Park, Meyer Ranch, Alderfer/Three Sisters Park

When they’re not riding, campers tackle bike maintenance, solving derailleur tension issues, adjusting chain lengths, and truing wheels. Learning to plan and prepare for the most undesirable bike issues, gives campers the knowledge they need to pack for any bike expedition.

Zach Hykan

I love to work with kids because they bring such high energy and passion for learning new activities and skills. It’s inspiring for me to see kids leap headfirst into a new thing, even when it’s hard or scary. When a kid is truly and fully absorbed with something it’s unlike anything else. To be able to take what I love in the world and try to present it in a way where it gets kids equally excited is one of the great joys of choosing to work with children. My favorite outdoor adventures are climbing, skiing, mountain and road biking, and hiking. A few of my big adventures have been climbing South Six Shooter in Moab, Skiing in Japan, and mountain biking in redwood forests. I’m also hoping to climb every 14er in Colorado before I turn 30. I love working for Avid4 Adventure because I get to see children develop a love for the same outdoor activities that I do. I also get to see my friends and coworkers have a blast hanging out with kids and helping them get stoked about nature.

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.
