Mountain Bike Camp

Ride bikes, jump in cold mountain water and learn about the adventure of following Jesus during a week of Mountain Bike camp. A combination of skills instruction and ride clinics prepare campers to ride the world-class trails of Mount Shasta and Mount Ashland while time off the bike is spent swimming, on the high ropes course, and learning how God loves us and loves adventure.

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.
