Welch Village uses the PMBI MTB teaching system & certified coaches for all lesson programs. 

Kids Gravity Day Camps 
The Kids Gravity Day Camp program is a 4-hour, fun-filled, day camp where kids ages 9-14 learn the fundamental skills of downhill mountain biking. Gravity day campers will learn the basic skills of downhill mountain biking in this camp including:  position & balance, braking, cornering, descending, cadence & more.  Safety education will be the overlying principle in all skills that are taught. 

Kids will be placed into small groups according to age & experience.  Instruction and riding will begin in the parking areas & skills park and eventually progress onto our green downhill trails. Our goal is to have all kids ride the chairlift during the camp at least once.  

This camp is open to all kids age 9-14 who can ride a bike with confidence.  Helmets are required. Knee/arm guards and gloves are highly recommended. 
Some off-road mountain biking experience recommended but not required. 

Personal bike requirements:
All personal bikes must be functional mountain bikes.  Front and back hand brakes are required with at least front-suspension.  
*We highly recommend bringing your bike to a local professional bike shop for a full bike inspection before using the bike in this program*

Cost: $60 per session (MTB all-day lift ticket included) 
Includes:  4 hours of coaching, lift ticket, and lunch!
