Our weeklong expedition camp is designed for 5th – 6th graders with mountain biking experience* ready to build their skills and explore beautiful trails as they bike every day and camp under the stars every night. Their adventure home base is Curt Gowdy State Park in Wyoming, 24 miles west of Cheyenne and known for its gorgeous meadows, dramatic granite formations and miles and miles of bike trails.
In a group of no more than 13 campers and two experienced instructors, kids will take to their bikes to explore Curt Gowdy’s 50+ miles of dedicated mountain biking trails, plus 30+ miles more at nearby Happy Jack Recreation Area. They’ll hone their technical and trail riding skills and enjoy up to five hours of biking a day, plus learn bike maintenance and camping fundamentals. They’ll also spend one very fun day off the trail rafting the Cache la Poudre River.
After a week of epic biking and tent camping in authentic, awe-inspiring settings, expedition mountain biking campers come away transformed into skilled, self-assured trail shredders.
* Participants must have some experience biking on single-track dirt trails and uneven rocky terrain. Campers will likely be divided up by experience level during rides. We strongly encourage campers to bring their own fully tuned, well-fitted mountain bikes to increase their comfort level. If they don’t have a bike or bring one that isn’t trail-ready, they can rent from our fleet for a $50 fee.
* Departure and pick up are in Louisville, CO.
