I'll be joining @SpartaBard again this summer for mountain bike camp out of Morristown-Beard School.

Morristown-Beard School, located in Morristown, New Jersey, offers weekly camp programs throughout the summer. Each morning, campers arrive at the campus where we head to various parks in our area.

Our beginner week is for boys and girls ages 9 and up offers attentive instruction and a low camper-to-counselor ratio. Riders of all abilities will learn the basics of mountain biking and safety while making new friends and exploring great trails. Campers should have some experience riding a geared bicycle. We will introduce trail etiquette and bike maintenance and basic trail riding skills to the campers. We will be riding approximately 8-10 miles each day. This camp runs 7/1-7/5.

Our regular camp weeks for boys and girls ages 10-14, will include riding approximately 10-15 miles each day at challenging off-road locations. The pace and activities will be based upon the skill level of the riders. Campers should have some experience at riding a Mountain Bike but are also looking to improve their overall handling skills, trail etiquette, bike maintenance and trail riding skills. This camp runs 7/8-7/12; 7/15-7/19; 7/22-7/26; 7/29-8/2
