Mountain Bike Camp

The Town of Harrisburg mountain bike camp allows campers to spend the week with a group of like-minded kids and learn about all aspects of mountain biking in an age-appropriate, fun setting. We look to provide an opportunity for kids to expand their skill set and experience a week full of new challenges.

Challenge-by-Choice Philosophy

Campers can choose to ride less demanding trails and progress to more challenging trails as their skills and confidence grow. Campers will get all the encouragement and guidance they need without being forced or compelled to go on a ride.

9:00am to 4:00pm daily

Ages 10-15 (possible age exceptions-contact aabernathy@harrisburgnc.org)
