School Holiday Camps

School Holiday Camps: Welcome

Are your kids looking for an exciting and active way to spend their school holiday? Look no further! Dates for our summer School Holiday Camps are now available! Whether they're beginners ready to explore the basics or seasoned riders looking to conquer more challenging trails, we've got the perfect adventure for every level.

We're offering some one day camps in December and two day camps in January, tailored to two age groups: 7-10 years and 10-13 years, plus there's a 3 hour 'Advanced' session for kids who are keen to kick it up a notch, increase their speed, and conquer even more challenging terrain.

Back by popular demand is our girls-only camp! While we've been stoked to see more girls participating in our kids' camps, they still make up a smaller portion of our attendees. By offering this girls-only option, we aim to encourage even more participation. Rest assured, our girls-only camp is an additional option and not intended to exclude girls from our other camps. We enthusiastically welcome girls to join any and all of our camp experiences!

Chocolate Foot's holiday camps provide a perfect blend of skill-building, trail exploration, obstacle challenges, games, and, of course, loads of FUN! Our goal is to enhance your child's mountain biking abilities while they enjoy an unforgettable time in the great outdoors.

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. Each day 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 each day (8.30am-2.30pm) and the 'Advanced' camp is 3 hours' duration. 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. During the camp, we'll split into two groups for the trail riding components, ensuring everyone has an enjoyable and appropriate experience.

  2. An 'Advanced' camp, which is suitable for riders who have well developed riding skills and who ideally have attended training with us before. We’ll be learning and refining more advanced skills such as jumping, drops, mastering steep roll-ins and how to corner fast! When you register your child for this, you'll be asked to provide some detailed information about how your child is suitable for this session - don't hesitate to get in touch prior to signing up if you're not sure!
