Summer 2024
Your long weekend will be packed with both purpose built flow trails and natural singletrack wonders as we shuttle the Shastice trail system in Mount Shasta and the epic 12 mile downhill trail at Mount Ashland. A combination of skills instruction and ride clinics will prepare you to ride world-class trails and when you’re not biking you’ll spend time swimming and cliff jumping, hanging out around the campfire, eating, enjoying new friends and making intentional connections between Dads and Sons and Creation and the Creator.

    Bring your own bike. Each camper should bring their own bike for this camp. We recommend that you have your bike tuned up prior to camp so it's ready to go. If you don't have a bike that is suitable for a week of hard riding you can rent one at your local bike shop or contact us and we can help you with some good options for renting up in our neck of the woods.

    Please note that e-bikes are not allowed on some of the Forest Service trails.
