Purgatory Summer Camps, starting July 16th!
Devo coaches will lead rides and serve as your kid’s camp counselor all day. Groups: Kids will be placed in groups based on ability (beg/int/adv.) Camp activities include special guest appearances, gravity skill sessions, bike fit, and trail building. Registration fee includes 5:1 coaching both in the Purgatory Bike Park and on the mountain utilizing the chairlift. This year Devo will be utilizing some new lift-accessed terrain, courtesy of Purg’s new push to expand it’s MTB trail options!
Camp times are: 9:00-3:00pm. Devo coaches will pick up kids just before 9:00 am in town at the Durango Rec Center front parking lot (look for the Devo vans), then travel north and pick up if necessary in Hermosa at 9:15 in the PJ’s Parking lot at Trimble Lane. Drop drop off at 3:30 PJ’s Parking lot at Trimble lane and 3:45 in town at the Durango Rec Center front parking lot. Devo coaches will be in the vans with the kids.
The Purgatory Gravity Camp will focus on Enduro, Downhill, and Dirt Jumping, so it is best of an intermediate/advanced rider. Lift tickets are included, and the Gravity Campers will have the opportunity to session some of Purgatory’s newly-built trail offerings.
These camps are a blast, and everyone comes home with a grin!
Cycling Science Sumer Camps, starting June 25th!
Like biking? Like science? We have your dream camp! Devo’s Cyclin’ Science Camps are week-long camps combining mountain bike exploration in the mornings, and bike-related hands-on science at the Powerhouse each afternoon! In the afternoon lab portion, kids will explore topics including anatomy and physiology, nutrition, bike engineering and simple machines, physics of biking, and more. One thing’s for sure: your kids will sleep well after each day of this camp!

Seed Studio Summer Camps, starting June 4th!
New this year, Devo is partnering with Seed Studio of Durango to combine art, yoga, and hands-on outdoor nature activities with fun on bikes! These week-long camps will consist of an MTB adventure led by Devo certified coaches in the morning. Then in the afternoon, Seed Studios will offer a wide range of project topics and supplies that will spark kids’ creativity & expose them to a stimulating mix of age-appropriate art techniques each day.

Preschool Summer Camp, starting June 18th!
The Preschool Summer Camp is for ages 4-5, but is limited to kids who can comfortably ride a pedal bike (no pushbikes allowed for this one). Practice locations will vary day-by-day, but practices will focus on building skills in a safe, fun, and entertaining environment. Those that love our regular Spring preschool programs will want to register for this early! There are a limited number of spots available, and camps fill up fast!
U14 Summer Camp, starting June 11th!
The U14 summer camp is for middle school age kids interested in continuing to build skills and begin to pursue racing, though racing is not mandatory. Promoting the sport in a fun environment and learning skills is still the overall goal of U14, but some specific training is involved. The summer season will be a 2-week camp which will culminate in an epic, out-of-town trip. Riders will also have the option to travel to a few races along the way. The group will be co-ed and limited to 20 riders. Each day will focus on a skill and a trail. We will incorporate polo, bike maintenance, short tracks, time trails, and lots of skills!
Riders must have at least one season of U14 already under their belt.
Thanks to all of Devo’s sponsors, especially…
