Grab your bike! Grab your gear!

You’re about to experience one of the best weeks that combines your passion for mountain biking, the outdoors, and Kidder Creek.

Regardless of your level of skill (beginner­–advanced) coming into this week at camp, you’ll come out the other end of this trail with more confidence, new experiences, having ridden new trails and built relationships and memories that will last a lifetime.

Not only will you be tent camping with some great counselors and trained biking coaches, this adventure will also include biking at the base of Mount Shasta, an overnight bike trip, and a week-capping trail ride on Mount Ashland in southern Oregon. When you’re not biking you’ll spend time swimming, hanging out around campfires, cliff jumping and enjoying other fun camp activities.

All campers should be ready to ride each day for a half to whole day and so should be physically fit in order to maximize enjoyment of the week. Bring your own bike or rent one from a local bike shop.
