Lil Rippers Mountain Bike Camp

LEvel 1

Is your child ready to rip!?!? This is the place for them to move beyond the pavement and onto the trail.

Campers must have advanced beyond training wheels and be comfortable riding on varying terrain. Your camper will spend each day of this camp being introduced to the basics of mountain biking. The proper stance, braking, and trail awareness will be demonstrated and taught to these young riders to give them the foundation for a lifetime of biking. The flat ground progression area outside of the Grand Avenue Chalet, Pump Track, Skills Park, and the Duluth Traverse will be the stomping ground for these Lil Rippers to grow!
