Youth Mountain Bike Camp - Montgomery County, MD
Youth riders between the ages of 8 and 14 looking to hone your mountain bike skills and build confidence on the bike, this is the camp for you! Based out of South Germantown Recreation Park, and more specifically the South Germantown Bike Park, this camp offers five days of expert instruction and the opportunity to ride several of the area's best trail networks. Both beginner and intermediate level riders will have tailor-fit instruction during their week. Beginner riders may be identified as those who are new to off-road riding while intermediate riders may be identified as those who have a solid base of cycling ability and are ready to spend more time riding and applying their mountain bike skills to more advanced trails. If you have any questions about which week is best suited for your rider(s), please contact us at email@example.com.
Over the course of both weeks, campers will have the opportunity to experience many features to develop and test their skills. These will include, but are not limited to:
- Germantown Bike Park Pump Track
- Schaeffer Farms
- Portable Skills Park featuring Teeter Totters, Ladder Bridges, and "Rock Gardens"
- Black Hill Regional Park
After drop-off at South Germantown Recreational Park each morning, coaches will lead unique mountain bike skills drills, and then the trail riding begins! We will ride new trials some days while focusing on specific skills, and then revisit certain trails throughout the week to see just how much we've advanced and the progress everyone has made. We will stop to hydrate and stay fueled up as needed throughout the day, and take a good break for lunch.
