MOUNTAIN BIKE CAMPS FOR KIDS

Catamount’s Mountain Bike Camp Program was established in 1994 and is now entering its 23rd year.  Last summer almost 400 campers came through our program and we are proud to present our 2016 summer camp schedule.  Our facility offers a wonderful network of over 20 miles of trails on nearly 500 acres of scenic and historical property conveniently located just 9 miles from Burlington and within easy access for much of Chittenden County and beyond.  There is even a Bed & Breakfast onsite to make staying for those coming from a distance easy.  Our camps begin at age 6 years old and go up to age 16.  Please explore the website to see what we offer and feel free to check out the lesson plans, as well.  The dates for the coming summer camp season will be available by 12/31 and online registration opens on Feb 1st.
