Summer Bike Camps
Nitehawk is excited to offer 3 different bike camp options! Our original and popular 1 week camp for youth ages 8-15 of all abilities, a week long advanced camp for previous Nitehawk campers who are ready to take their riding to the next level and a Mini Groms camp for kids age 4-8 who are on two wheels and eager to take their bikes out on some trails!
All of the camps take place on the beautiful Wapiti River Valley here at Nitehawk Year Round Adventure Park in Grande Prairie. Each day camp will start at 9am to 4pm. Daily activities for each camp include downhill mountain bike skill development in a fun & safe environment, trail riding on Nitehawks many bike trails, basic bicycle maintenance training, bike & trail safety and most important… getting dirty and having fun. Plus tons of other activities thrown in throughout the week.
