Birkie Youth Mountain Bike Camp – June 9, 2019!

The American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation is again hosting a Birkie Youth Mountain Bike Camp for youth ages 6-12 on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at the Samuel C. Johnson Family Outdoor Center at the OO Trailhead.

Get a recovery ride in after the Borah Epic while your child/children learn skills on the bike!  Coaches from the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation, Hayward Composite MTB Team, and Rice Lake Composite MTB Team will have your kids learning new skills, brushing up on old skills, and most importantly- having fun on a bike!  The Birkie Youth Mountain Bike Camp is geared (no pun intended) toward newer riders or those wanting to refine and refresh their basic skills.  Kids will learn in small groups of similar skill levels.  Breakout sessions will focus on balance, braking, cornering, obstacles, and more.  Kids age 10 and up will venture out on the single track for the afternoon to put their newly honed skills to the test.  Snacks and lunch will be provided for everyone.

Who: Youth ages 6 -13 years of age

When: Sunday, June 9

Cost: $40 for a day fun on the trails!

Please email with any questions.  All participants should have a bike in working order, helmet, water bottle, sunscreen, and bug spray.  Please send food if a special diet is required, or contact for assistance.
