New this year for two of the camps we will be partnering with Trails 2000, our local non profit that plans, builds and maintains trails in and around Durango on City, County, BLM, Forest Service and private lands, we will introduce elements of trail design into the camps. Trails 2000 Trail Kids Educator, Ziggy Lanman, will assist coach all week and infiltrate her vast trail education skills into this camp. Your child will learn the biology, geology, and art behind trails, and the role they play into our trail experiences. The 2 camps that will have this element are July 24th -28th and August 7th-11th. Hope to see you on the mountain!!

Each day will focus on a skill and a trail. We will incorporate polo, bike maintenance, short tracks, time trails, and lots of skills!

Costs: $450 (does not include food, race fees or camping costs).
