Kid’s Camps

So, it is official. For the summer of 2017, we will NOT be offering our KID'S CAMPS. It looks as though Ski and Snowboard Club Vail is moving forward with the rebuild of their new building.

The KID'S CAMPS will return in 2018. Please use the info below to plan for the 2018 camps. Exact times and dates to be announced.

ABILITY LEVEL:
Kids must be at least 7 years old and be very strong riding on pavement because we ride them on dirt.  They must be comfortable shifting gears and riding 6+ miles! We encourage you to ride with them as much as possible on pavement or dirt to get them ready for camp!
If we feel their skills do not allow them to ride safely on the dirt, we will send them home without a refund. (Also note that TUESDAY’s camp days are mandatory because we teach fundamentals!)

Early Registration Deadlines:
Must register 72 hours in advance. No day of camp registrations.

Early Registration Discount:
