Momentum Mountain Bike Camp
Sleep-Away

Mountain Bike Sleep-Away Camp!

July 22 – 26 (grade 7 – 9) & July 29 – August 2 (grades 9 – 12)

Ask and you shall receive! Over the past four years of running our Momentum Mountain Bike Day Camp and receiving lots of requests to do a sleep away camp we will be offering one in 2019! 

We have taken all the knowledge and experience learned from our day camp and coupled it with all of our over-night multi-day clinics and created an amazing experience for kids.

Our goal in this camp is to create an experience that goes beyond just having a good time on two wheels (however that is hugely important!). We went to create a camp that will leave children feeling more confident, empowered, knowledgeable and independent. 

In this year’s curriculum we will be going beyond the bike with expert elective clinics on:

  • Mindfulness
  • Introduction to healthy nutrition and cooking
  • Action sports photography basics
  • Active Stretching AKA Yoga
  • Spanish Language Lessons with Middlebury College  graduate
  • Coaching 101 – How to help to structure your riding to balance longevity and performance
  • Bicycle Mechanics
  • SAT Prep

All of these clinics are incorporated to help create well-balanced and healthy habits to fuel a long life of fun and industriousness!

At the main stage is mountain biking, and each day campers will receive instruction and ample riding. The rides and instruction will be taking place at Darling Hill, Victory Hill, Moose Haven, Moose Alley and White school areas (depending on ability levels).

All instruction and guidance comes from our instructors who are:

  • Background Check Certified
  • Wilderness First Aid and CPR Certified
  • Kingdom Cycling Certified Skills Instructor
  • Ample experience in a camp setting and with children

The price of the camp is $2,000 and includes:

  • All mountain bike instruction and riding
  • All transportation once the camper has arrived to the camp
  • All dormitory style lodging at the Sugar House Villa
  • Healthy and home-made Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks (additional riding snacks and after hour snacks not included)
  • Goodie Bags 
  • All additional clinics
