Trailblazer Mountain Bike Camp for Teens

Are your kids looking for some exciting opportunities to meet friends and grow as mountain bikers? This year’s Trailblazer Camp will be the best summer fun your 10-16 year olds have ever had. Your kid will spend the day with like-minded riders while being overseen by some of Lake Tahoe’s best bike coaches. Our coaches will teach your kids how to make the most of the Northstar Bike Park. Groups will be created based on ability, so whether they're here to learn the basics or prepare for race day, we’ll have them covered.

Reserve your spot in 2016 Summer Trailblazers Camp TODAY for July 18 - 22

Camp Times

10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

*This is not an overnight camp


9:30 – 10am Meet up at the Specialized Academy (Next to the Season Pass Office)

10am Bike Park opens.

10:00am - 12:30pm Warm-up laps. We'll make sure all riders are appropriately grouped to maximize fun and learning potential. Groups will be around a 6:1 ratio allowing plenty of opportunity for one-on-one coaching. We will utilize the lift priority that only Bike Academy groups get - more riding, less standing in line.

12:30 - 1:30pm Supervised lunch at Big Springs Day Lodge at Mid-Mountain.

1:30 – 4:00pm Afternoon riding. We'll take this time to start pushing ourselves on familiar trails, or exploring new ones.

4:00 – 4:30pm Village meet-up. Time to recap the day and lay out the plan for the next day. If you’ve still got the energy, try some roller skating or mini golf. OR put your feet up and have a soda as you dream about tomorrow's trail adventure.
