5-Day Freeride Camp, July 14–18, 2014
Join some of British Columbia’s top pro riders including Dylan Sherrard and Brett Tippie for this comprehensive camp which introduces riders aged 10–17 years to all aspects of freeriding in the legendary Sun Peaks Bike Park.

Our coaches have been riding a long time and know it's all about having fun on the trails, so skill development is well balanced with positive encouragement, a few skids, and plenty of high fives! They'll provide campers with the skills and confidence to tackle single track, berms, jumps, steeps, and whatever else the mountain might throw their way. Campers will also learn bike setup and maintenance to ensure their bikes are properly tuned and safe to hit the trails. Once the camp is finished we hope to send you home with some new skills that will make every ride more fun than the last.

Students are broken up into groups based on riding ability and the camper to coach ratio is no greater than 6:1, to ensure everyone gets the best instruction and safest care possible.
