SMBA Summer Camps


Our summer camps offer 4-day adventures for beginner mountain bikers who want to learn how to ride comfortably on singletrack trails, or those who want to continue to practice basic bike handling skills they have learned in previous camps. We offer three different summer camp programs: Junior Riders (2nd-5th grade, co-ed); Cycling Sisters (2nd-6th grade, girls); and Explorers (5th – 8th grade, co-ed).


During each ride, coaches foster teamwork and camaraderie; and work with athletes to practice proper technique for navigating technical sections of trail, proper trail etiquette on multi-use trails, and basic trail side bike repairs. Through lots of trail time, fun rides, and an encouraging, non-competitive environment, athletes build confidence on their bikes, make new friends, and practice their mountain bike skills on City of Boulder and County Open Space trails. 


SMBA summer camp rides spend approximately 6 – 6 1/2 hours on the trail and ride at a different trail location each day.  Camp ride locations include: Marshall Mesa, Doudy Draw, Heil Ranch, Betasso, and Valmont Bike Park.


Summer camps are a great introduction to SMBA and the exhilarating sport of mountain biking! We recommend athletes participate in a summer camp or two before they sign up for SMBA Team programs.
