Holiday Camps for Age Group 7-10 Years

Our camps are tailored for both novice and intermediate riders. We'll practice skills together while offering challenges suited to each rider's level. During the camp, we'll split into two groups for the trail riding components, ensuring everyone has an enjoyable and appropriate experience.

 

We'll cover the fundamental skills such as body position, braking control, balance, use of gears, climbing and descending, cornering, and riding obstacles, and spend plenty of time on the trail putting it all into practice. This camp is 5 hours' duration (8.30am-1.30pm).

Holiday Camps for Age Group 10-13 Years

For the 10-13 year age group, our 'regular' camps are six hours' duration (8.30am-2.30pm) and the 'Advanced' camp is 3 hours' duration (9.00am-12.00pm). More info below on the two types of camp:

  1. The 'Regular' camp which is tailored for both novice and intermediate riders, as we'll practice skills together while offering challenges suited to each rider's level.
