This past Spring was the first Cog Wild Mountain Bike Kids Camp. Not trying to compete with MBSEF’s very popular camp aimed at teaching kids how to prepare for racing, Cog Wild’s camp focuses on just having fun through mountain biking while teaching riding skills and confidence.
Our camp was a huge success with rave reviews from the parents. We heard everything from "our kids now take us for a ride and show us their favorite trails", "our son spent all summer on his bike with his newly acquired skills" and our daughter is eager to go riding now vs. us having to drag her out, it is her new favorite sport!"
We also heard from some parents that the cost was a little difficult for them. Although we are a business, it is very important to us that kids have an opportunity to get out and ride, so we have decided to lower the price to $195 for any camp kids sign up for. Before the price was $230 for the first camp and $195 for any other camps the same child signed up for. Hopefully this means more kids will be able to join us for kids camp this fall!!
