What better way to spend those long summer days than ripping and shredding at America’s Bike Park!? Learn to shred the mountain from Highland’s expertly trained coaches during our four one-week sessions this summer.

 

Summer Ride is a multi-day camp for 8 to 12 year olds interested in mountain biking and offered as either a day or sleepover option. Campers of all abilities will learn new skills, develop more confidence, make new friendships and take their riding to the next level. Riders have the opportunity to focus on specific freeride and downhill skills with an emphasis on safety and rider etiquette.

CAMP SAFETY & RULES

Safety is our first priority. From the moment campers arrive, our staff of experienced coaches and camp counselors ensure they are having a fun and safe experience. We do this by maintaining the strictest of protocol along with:

  • Low camper to coach ratio
  • 24/7 adult supervision
  • Highly trained Patrol staff
  • Full service First Aid Base

Campers are expected to follow the Tilton School and Highland Mountain Bike Park rules and treat everyone at camp with courtesy and respect. Rules are strictly enforced, and violations will result in parent notifications and potential camper expulsion.

  • NO drugs or alcohol
  • NO weapons, violence or abusive language
  • NO theft or vandalism
  • Campers are not allowed to leave camp boundaries

COACHING

The Highland coaching staff come from varied backgrounds – including everything from classically trained musicians to childhood development majors. They are all amazingly talented riders and passionate about sharing their knowledge of the sport with new riders.

 

Every Monday camp begins with a skills assessment and goal evaluation. Campers are then broken up into groups based upon their skill set and riding goals. A low 6:1 camper to coach ratio helps maximize safety and ensure a great camp experience.
