Grom Camp has your children covered for week-long programs all summer long. From beginner Bike Park riders through advanced groms, we have crafted a 5-day program to help your child take their riding to the next level. Our approach to Grom Camp is simple – Stay Safe, Have Fun, and SHRED!

Daily flow will include warm up time, coaching, lunch with team, and freeride/re-ride time. We will also incorporate a few afternoons out of the saddle to keep the stoke high and the legs fresh. Examples of off-bike time are SUPing, Capture the Flag, Bike Maintenance Clinics, and Zip Lining.
