Youth Development Weekend Camp
Looking for a spring tuneup? This weekend camp might fit perfectly into your busy spring schedule.
Our Youth Development Program is for beginners, typically 8 through 12 years of age, that are relatively new to mountain biking.
Through this camp, young riders will learn to be more in control and more confident on their bike, developing and improving on fundamental skills such as; braking, shifting, cornering, climbing, descending, balance, manoeuvring over and around small obstacles, biking safety, and trail etiquette. We will spend time experimenting with skills in easy terrain to gain experience and comfort and then will venture off onto some of Fernie's best beginner and easy intermediate trails.
Providing fun experiences for kids in a safe and enjoyable environment is an essential part of all of our programs.
This weekend camp runs Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am - 1:00pm
Exact meeting location in Fernie to be confirmed

Additional Program Details
These sessions are typically for kids aged 8 through 12 who are relatively new to mountain biking.
Participants should be prepared to be on their bike for much of the three hour session beginning with practicing fundamental bike handling skills followed by a ride on easier trails, approximately 5-8km in length with 200 to 300 meters of elevation gain and loss.
Participants MUST wear a helmet, meeting or exceeding industry standards, for the duration of the session.
Participants MUST have bikes in good working order including brakes and shifting.
Participants MUST have off-road tires and carry a spare tube for their rim and tire size.
Participants MUST have appropriate clothing for weather conditions as well as adequate food and hydration.
We ask that participants be comfortable using the "facilities" in nature unassisted.
A welcome letter with more details, how to be prepared, and what to bring, will be sent to registrants in advance of the session.
