Jefferson City

Mountain Bike 

Camp

Children ages 8-14 will learn the FUN-damentals and safety of off-road cycling including: starting, stopping, shifting, turning, pedaling, bike maintenance, trail safety, LNT principles and much more. We have the unique opportunity to ride some of the leading trail networks that Jefferson City has to offer while making some great new friends along the way!

Pre-requisites

Our youth camps are intended for children ages 8-14. Participants must be able to ride a bike. "Riding a bike" includes but is not limited to comfort starting, stopping, turning, and riding 3+ miles on pavement. We encourage children and parents to ride as much as possible before attending camp; from our experience, this sets a good base and helps ensure the best camp experience. 

The Details

Where we meet
You will receive an email a week before your week at camp with specifics for drop off location, time, and other details about camp. 

The Camp will be held in

Binder Park

5518 Rainbow Dr, just east of Binder Pavilion.

What to bring

Required:
- Mountain bike which must be tuned up and ready to ride (front suspension and gears recommended; for safety reasons bicycles with coaster brakes will not be accepted).*Rental mountain bikes are available from us for a small daily maintenance fee.

- Helmet 
- Water bottle (that can be carried on bike) or Hydration Backpack
- A nutritious lunch and substantial snack for the day
 

Suggested items to bring:

Gloves

*We also suggest every camper have eaten before coming to camp as we all know a hungry camper is not a happy camper. 

 

Rain/ Heat Policy
We are an outdoor camp, so in the event of weather that prevents us from riding the trails we may have to cancel. In the event of a cancellation due to heat or rain refunds will be credited toward another week at camp.
