Boone Area Cyclists and Watauga County Parks & Recreation host annual Kids Mountain Bike Camp
The purpose of the camp is to help youth in the High Country become confident and safe riders while enjoying the challenge of physical fitness. We hope they will connect and grow as a community of riders while learning to appreciate and value the outdoors.
Campers will be led by BAC members who are trained to lead group rides. Most rides will last 1 to 1.5 hours and will take place both before and after lunch. Kids will be grouped according to age and skill level. Camp will also include skill-building sessions and technical talks about bikes and their parts.
Camp is from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm each day, with lunch around 11:30. Lunch and small snacks will be provided each day, along with water for refilling water bottles or packs.
Camp will be $120.00 and kids must be Family Members of the BAC.
