Year after year, Calgary has proven to be one of the most popular spots on the schedule. The area has a super active population, the camp benefits from solid on-site support, and the word of mouth that's stemmed from learning all kinds of mountain bike skills has been simply amazing.
We start all our camp mornings at Easter Seals Camp Horizon in Bragg Creek. There we take care of our sign in and demo activities, run our morning skill development sessions, have lunch, and then head out for afternoon rides on the trails just nearby.
Cross-country focused options include Riverview, Pneuma, Moose Packers - Ridgeback and Powder Face - Prairie Link. More downhill focused options, which we'll shuttle, include Brakeless, Toothless, Race of Spades, T-Dub, Jean Guy on the Rocks, and Billy Dog.
Thanks to the Moose Mountain Bike Trail Society and the Calgary Mountain Bike Alliance, the trails are continuously updated and maintained. Pneuma and Ridgeback are two fairly new trails on the XC front, and the DH trails have some improved berms, jumps and technical trail features.
This year we’re offering three Calgary camps -- a women's specific one-day camp on Friday, June 8, a women's specific weekend camp on June 9-10 and, thanks to so many requests, a co-ed one-day camp on Monday, June 11.
We're also in the process of organizing an evening session where participants from all the camps can meet for bike maintenance clinics, bike set up opportunities, shopping, socializing, drinks and snacks. As soon as we have more information, we'll post it here.
We'll have a Trek retailer connected with this event, but are still in the process of determining who it'll be. Please check back for more information soon.

We'll start our camp days in Bragg Creek, so looking for a bed and breakfast or guest house there is a good idea. You can also check out options in Redwood Meadows and Pridis, all online. If you need help, please feel free to email us.
