Only $320 per Week
Over the week campers will participate in single sessions of Trail Ready First Aid, and Basic Back Country Bike Maintenance. The week ends with the Godfathers Garage Day with contests and prizes!
Campers will explore the indoor terrain of North Shore Bike Park, the Pump Tracks, Jump Lines, Street Zone and Air Bags, as well as participate in other skills to prepare them for outdoor trails and backcountry shredding, as well as activities to build social confidence and benefit healthy living.

Who is this for?
Participants must be able to ride their bikes confidently enough to ride on local pedestrian/bike paths without training wheels. Some trail experience is recommended. Riders will be introduced to the park and the various terrain options as a group and do not need prior experience in a bike park.
All campers are expected to be welcoming of all other campers regardless of their skill level and to provide support and encouragement to others.
What to Bring
Your Bike! Or rent one!
Ensure your bike (Mountain or BMX) is in excellent condition and has undergone recent servicing. Our Skills Camp instructors will conduct a safety check before the course begins. While we’ll address minor issues, participants bear responsibility for their bike’s overall condition. Those with unsafe bicycles won’t be permitted to join the ride for everyone’s safety.
- No training wheels
- No kickstands
- You must have bar-ends
If you are in need of a rental bike they are offered to campers at only $10 per day and can be paid for in advance at Reception.
We recommend a high-quality mountain biking shoe or suitable BMX shoe with a flat sole when using flat pedals. You can find these flat pedal shoes at your nearby bike shop, representing a valuable gear investment for your biking pursuits.
Protective Gear and Helmets!
Participation in any cycling activity requires mandatory helmet usage without exceptions. Additionally, it’s recommended that participants bring and wear any comfortable body armour throughout the camp. Common choices include knee/shin protection and, optionally, elbow protection. Feel free to bring any protective gear that boosts your confidence without compromising endurance; the level of armour is entirely at your discretion. Furthermore, it’s advised to wear gloves for added safety during the clinic. NOTE: All camp participants earn 10% off Troy Lee Design helmets and safety gear before and while attending the camp.
Hydration & Snacks
As a significant part of our day will be spent on bikes, it’s crucial for you to stay hydrated – and it’s easy to overlook while having fun. Ensure that your water bottle or hydration pack is filled with fresh water at all times. There is a water bottle filler in the park as well as vending machines and a Dollar Store. It’s your responsibility to maintain proper hydration throughout the activities.
Read and Sign the Waiver
Every person who enters the terrain floor must sign the waiver. Please review the waiver and be sure to sign the waiver in advance of arrival. One parent can not sign for another parent’s child!
