Campers experience the thrill of mastering mountain biking as they hit the trails in our Mountain Biking Day Camp. With help from our seasoned instructors, campers spend the week practicing mountain biking skills, learning bicycle maintenance basics and traversing the terrain of some of Boulder’s best beginner parks and trails.
Our campers’ adventures are carefully customized so they progress as their comfort and skill level grows. We also group kids by grade—2nd – 4th graders in our Skills Camp, 5th – 7th graders on the Adventure Team—to be sure they’re in good company as they build confidence and further their mastery of mountain biking.
Mountain Biking Day Camp campers should be comfortable riding on dirt on two wheels. While we strongly encourage campers to use their own bikes, we can provide bikes (and helmets) as needed.

Campers learn how to properly fit a helmet and bike, practice basic bike commands and get comfortable with technical skills including bunny hops, track stands, braking and shifting, becoming more proficient riders as they take on incremental challenges.
We introduce campers to a range of Boulder parks and trails—Eagle Trail, Marshall Mesa, C.U. Research Park, Dowdy Draw—where they practice good trail etiquette as they learn to ride on rolling single and double track terrain, descending and ascending trail sections and narrow and winding trails.
When they’re not riding, campers get familiar with the nuts and bolts of bike maintenance, learning to safety check their bikes, solve gear problems and change flat tires.
Haley grew up in Minnesota, where she first discovered her love of the outdoors exploring the majestic North Woods. A passionate adventurer and avid climber, she has traveled extensively across five continents to work, study, volunteer and conquer new climbing challenges.
Haley has a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Lewis and Clark College, an M.A. in Environment and Development from London’s King’s College and is a certified Wilderness First Responder. When she’s not climbing or sharing her enthusiasm for the outdoors with eager campers, you’ll find her rafting, camping or hiking.
While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your campers safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved—what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong—so campers learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
