Mountain Biking and Steam

In partnership with the Scott Family Amazeum, this camp combines mountain biking and STEAM. In the morning, campers will complete a skills assessment, learn mountain biking skills and ride the Slaughter Pen trails. In the afternoon, campers will explore tinkering and creativity skills as they dissect and repurpose bicycles and other biking gear at the Amazeum.
Campers must already be comfortable riding on pavement. Mountain bike and helmet required for each camper- bring your own or can be provided.
