2018 Summer TRAIL KIDS Camps
This year we will be offering two TRAIL KIDS camps in June and August. We also encourage kids to register for one of the many Loppet Adventure Camps that are offered from June – August. Youth ages 7-14 are welcome to attend either the June or August camps. We also have a July Family Hayward Mountain Bike Camp in Hayward.
TRAIL KIDS camps are a half day camp ( 9-1:00 p.m.) and focus on 2-3 activities per day with an emphasis on developing skills in the following activities: Mountain bike, canoeing, rollerski/rollerblade, and orienteering. The emphasis of the camps will focus on adventure, developing new motor skills, building endurance and making friends along the way!
The goal of each TRAIL KIDS camp is to provide some outdoor endurance adventures through a variety of sports. Wirth Park has some amazing mountain bike and running trails that the kids will enjoy exploring all week long! All TRAIL KIDS summer camps will meet Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. Participants will focus on 2-3 different activities per session that may include one of the following:
- Mountain biking
- Trail running
- Roller Skiing/rollerblade
- Ultimate frisbee and other relay games
- Adventure point to point triathlon ( bike, run, canoe)
Experience: We will split the kids into ability/age/gender groups for the different activities. Each group will have two camp coaches that will lead the group on mountain biking, orienteering, canoeing, swimming and game activities. The camp will start the first 20 minutes with large group games in two different age groups ( 7-10 year old) and (11-14 year old).
Equipment Needed: All camp participants will need their own mountain bike, helmet’s, running shoes and rollerski /rollerblades equipment. The Loppet has a limited supply of renal rollerblades and mountain bikes with extra rental charge ( see below).
Loppet Rental Equipment: If kids do not have the above equipment they can sign up to use some of the Loppet mountain bikes and rollerblades for the week of camp for an additional $20 fee.
