After School Bike Camps – Fall

After School Camps are once a week on Fromme Mountain OR in the Seymour Demonstration Forest.  This program is available to riders between the ages of 5 to 13 years and older.

The Ripper, riding in the Demo Forest, are at the earlier stages of their skill building (5 to 8 years and older).  Riders, taking to the trails on Fromme, The Shore Shredders, have a skill set which allows them to comfortably ride Bobsled and the trails lower than Bobsled.  The Extreme Riders, also on Fromme, have many years of riding experience and want to continue to add skills to their knowledge base.  The Extreme Riders will explore all trails on Fromme Mountain.   

This after school adventure will leave your rider hungry, tired and ready to chill out for the evening and possibly….. do their homework (sorry, no guarantee)!
