KIDS GRAVITY BIKE CAMP
One-week summer bike camp for 8 to 15-year-old kids and teens. Includes lift-served mountain biking, progression sessions, and tons of fun!|
Mt. Bachelor’s summer bike camps allow kids and teens to explore lift-accessed downhill bike trails in a fun and safe way! The one-week program also includes progression sessions on exclusive single-track cross-country trails and a whitewater rafting trip with Sun Country Tours! Mountain bikers of all ability levels are welcome, although every participant should already know how to ride a bicycle. Choose from eight, week-long sessions at Central Oregon’s best summer camp.
Cost of camp includes:
• (5) days of lift-served mountain biking and focused instruction on a variety of terrain with experienced Gravity School instructors
• Transportation to and from Bend, OR. The Mt. Bachelor Shuttle departs/returns from the Bend Park & Ride lot located on SW Columbia St. (Buses are operated by CET, with CET-employed drivers).
ALL CAMPERS MUST PURCHASE A 2020 SUMMER BIKE PARK SEASON PASS, sold separately at the discounted price of $99 for each camp participant. This Bike Park Season Pass allows for access to the downhill bike park during the week of camp and for the entirety of Mt. Bachelor's 2020 summer/fall biking season. One-week bike rental and protective equipment also available and sold separately. Due to the extreme nature of mountain biking, the purchase of damage insurance is highly recommended. Without damage insurance, the renter will be responsible for the full retail value of any and all damages to the equipment. Damage insurance covers any accidental damage to the equipment. Damage insurance does not cover intentional damage, loss or theft.
