Kingdom Mtb Camps is a skill-based camp that strives to improve riders' ability and confidence while having fun. We develop young riders in a healthy social environment filled with positive role models and peers. We want to help your child get excited about getting sweaty and dirty, while naturally learning about the mind and body.
Our coaching methods follow proven PMBI* methods for skill acquisition and riding ability. Our sessions typically have 20-30 campers and are split into three groups of 7-10 campers with 2 coaches or counselors per group. Small athlete-to-coach ratios provide a safe, positive learning environment and help ensure a fun day on the trails.
Our programming covers braking, riding position, trail awareness, turning, shifting, and more. Some groups progress to maneuvers like wheelies, bunny hops, jumps, and manuals.
We use the Kingdom Trails network, pump tracks, and our very own skills area during the session. Our main campus is filled with beginner to expert elements, including rollers, berms, bridges, and more. We give kids time to play and explore the home campus as we progress through the week.
AGES AND GROUP SELECTION (read this to help place your children in the right group)
Mountain biking is a skill-oriented sport where strength and size can have a significant effect on abilities. Ultimately, we want your child to be in a program with others of similar ability to create a positive and productive environment while out on the trail. We are NOT a never-ever camp. At a minimum, your child should be able to start and stop on their own, pedal the bike on flat terrain, and have the proper up-to-date equipment, suitable for safe and fun riding in the dirt.

These riders are capable of starting, stopping and turning on their own. We work on skills like body position, braking, turning and shifting while having fun. Children are introduced to pump track and single track riding in small groups, then head out for a taste of great flow trails like New School and Kitchel. Please note this is not an a program for a never- ever rider or has just started riding a bike. If your child has never ridden a bike or connot start, stop and turn on flat ground , or ride on their own up moderate hills, please consider a private lesson.

Skill building, fitness and health are the main emphasis for our Middle Ring group. We strive to advance our campers into competent, responsible riders while getting awareness of what is healthy for their bodies. A typical session starts with 30 minutes of skills on a flat and easy terrain followed by balance and pressure control work on the Kingdom Trails network. After a snack break we hit the single track and log some miles! Some sessions may end with a well deserved dunk in the Dishmill Brook.
MEETS 9:00-12:00 Monday-Friday AGES 8-13
The Friday through Sunday camp is for the mountain bike camper who wants to get the most out of their weekend and enjoy the NEK to it's fullest! Paretnts will have part of Friday night and the weekend mornings free while their camper engages with peers and hones their skills on the trails. Your child will learn and practice the skills taught in our 5-day weekday camp, but in a concentrated action-packed weekend environment that will pave the way for gaining biking skills. Each day starts with skill work such as body positioning, braking, turning and shifting, and then head out for real-time riding on great flow trails like New School and Kitchel.

The Overnight Development Camp is for experienced riders and campers who have participated in our Day Camps or other organized programs and want to take their riding to the next level. We explore concepts in sport physiology, nutrition, and psychology while riding, playing and having fun. Our basic goal is to safely progress the athletes skills while increasing their knowledge of how things work with their body and mind. We are excited for our second year of a super fun and active week!
