Camp Overview

A Trek Dirt Series camp is packed full of activities to foster learning, build community, and inspire fun.

Most of our camps run on a two-day weekend format, with morning skill development sessions, lunch, afternoon instructional rides, and then a Saturday evening session featuring bike maintenance clinics, bike fit opportunities, drinks, snacks, and social time.

Our single-day camps are held on Friday or Monday, and package the on-bike technical skills training, riding, and supporting evening activities into a condensed format.

Participants range from those with just a few days on gravel trails looking for a solid introduction, to those with years of experience and sights set on more technical lines and smoother air. We ask each participant to fill out a comprehensive skill questionnaire pre-camp, and then use that information to divide into groups according to experience and interest, and to customize our skill sessions and rides so that everyone fits in just right.

Our coach to participant ratio is at least 1:6 to make sure that each person receives individual attention. Plus, since we bring a truck full of structures and teaching aids to all of our camps, we’re able to provide a step-by-step learning environment and variable levels of challenge.

If you’re focused on a specific discipline, or keen on learning a specific skill, it’s a great idea to also read through our individual camp location pages (accessed from the top menu) to check that the character of the local trails matches your interests and dreams.

Finally, all camps include a group photo, draw prizes, and the exchange of contact info so that you can continue to share accomplishments, rides, and high fives as long as you like.

The camp was everything it portrayed itself to be – plus more. I learned awesome skills, met amazing people, and feel so much more connected to and aware of the female riding community.
