Canmore Big Fun Mountain Bike Camps

 

For Kids and Youth (to age 15)

 

Canmore BIG Fun Bike Camps July / August 2022 Book here

 

Trail Sports proudly holds Bike Camps for kids in partnership with the town of Canmore.

 

For twenty-seven years and counting, we've designed Big Fun Mountain Bike Camps specifically for young riders to learn how to bike while exploring the trails and having fun at the Canmore Nordic Centre.

 

Each camp runs for 5 days (M-F), except the first week of August camp which is 4 days (T-F). You can chose from morning or afternoon camps. Camps run from 9am-12pm or 1pm-4pm.

 

Young riders will increase their confidence on single track, improve their fitness, and just plain old have a blast with friends. Our PMBIA-certified bike instructors are ready to go! 

 

What to Expect at a Big Fun Bike Camp

 

Bike Check

 

Each week of camp starts with a thorough bike check: bikes must be mechanically sound for obvious safety reasons (think brakes!) but also, a proper fit encourages good riding technique, which also increases safety.

 

Trail Sports rents a great selection of kid's mountain bikes at reasonable rates. This is a good option if your child has outgrown their bike. Rent a Trail Sports mountain bike here.

 

After a thorough bike check on the first day, kids subsequently learn how to check the ABC's (air, brakes, chain) on their bikes before each ride. 

 

Fun Lessons, Games and Rides

 

The first few days of camp are weighted towards fun lessons and games designed to develop capable, consistent, and confident riding skills.

 

As the week progresses, kids take on different trails and start to ride further afield towards the middle and end of the week.

 

Student-Centred Approach

 

Our highly experienced instructors follow the student centred approach to learning. This means we start with exactly where each child is in their experience and skill level and go from there. If there is a wildly disparate ability level within a group, we can split the group.

 

A student-centered approach makes our camps appropriate for a child to join us for multiple weeks throughout the summer and many children do!

 

Weather

 

We ride in the rain because it's fun! Unless of course, it's too cold or too dangerous. We actively monitor for lightning conditions as well as high forest-fire-smoke days. If conditions are unfavourable for riding, we can access the Canmore Nordic Centre day lodge. In the case of indoor activities, we are prepared with great mountain biking videos (kids can learn a ton from watching good riders) and other biking crafts/activities. 

 

Availability

 

Canmore Big Fun Mountain Bike camps often fill up. We invite you to book your kid's camp early to avoid disappointment. Please follow the "Book here" link below to see available spots.
