Extended Day Mountain Biking Camp Portland - 2nd to 7th - Day Camp

In our Extended Day Mountain Biking Camp, campers experience the thrill of mastering mountain biking as they hit the local trails. 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 Portland’s best parks and trails.

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

Please note: Our Extended Day Mountain Biking Camp begins one hour earlier than our other Portland camp offerings. With an extra hour of camp, our mountain bikers will be able to access terrain that is normally off-limits to our other camp groups.

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.

Places We Go: Henry Hagg Lake, L.L. Stub Stewart State Park, and Lacamas Regional Park

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.

Places We Go: Henry Hagg Lake, L.L. Stub Stewart State Park, and Lacamas Regional Park

We introduce campers to a range 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.

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

Shelby Treichler

I love getting to spend my summer outdoors with a community of like-minded people. It wasn’t until quite recently that I learned the absolute joy that is being part of the outdoor community. The sooner we can bring children into the community, teach them how to be responsible stewards and how to adventure safely, the more likely we are to have a future where society is balanced with nature. I have my CPR and Wilderness First Aid cert and am in the process of obtaining my Wilderness First Responder. All my camps growing up were centered around school activities and sports. It wasn’t until my first summer with Avid that I got to experience a camp geared towards outdoor exploration and adventure. I love trying to spark in kids, especially young girls, the confidence and curiosity that I didn’t fully appreciate till later in life. I’ve backpacked and trekked all around the US and spent a month completing the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. I started rock climbing a couple of years ago and am excited to explore mountaineering more. In my free time, I run a small art/craft business inspired by the outdoors. I’ve had so many amazing mentors teach me about the outdoors and I enjoy the opportunity to pass on the knowledge and passion I’ve received to the kids we teach. 

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.
