Location: Squilchuck State Park, Riverfront Rock Gym
Date: July 8-12
This event is hosted by Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.
What could be better than biking in the morning and climbing in the afternoon? Nothing! Kids ages 6-12 are invited to join us for 5-full days of awesomeness riding their bike and climbing in a safe and supportive environment.
Morning session: From 9am to noon each day participants will be learning mountain bike skills such as body position and balance, braking, climbing and descending techniques, gearing and shifting, front and rear wheel lifts, cornering, roll downs and other trail skills to help with success on single track trail riding.
No experience necessary. However, each child is required to have a working bike and helmet.
Lunch and shuttle: Noon to 1pm participants will eat their lunch and be transported from Squilchuck State Park to Riverfront Climbing Gym by Wenatchee Shuttle Service.
Afternoon session: From 1 to 4 p.m. Participants will learn the basics of climbing in the gym. They will learn about climbing equipment, proper knots, how to belay, climbing movement, and how to stay safe in the gym. They will also learn climbing games to build friendships and teach teamwork. All rental gear is included with the camp.
You will drop your child off each day at 9am at Squilchuck and picked your child up at 4pm at Riverfront Rock Gym.
Please pack your child lunch, water bottle and sunscreen. Snacks and extra water will be provided.
