WORD Camps are the best part of school holidays! We have a variety of different camps during the January holidays…and during each camp we will ride, learn and giggle…heaps! Camps are open to kids of all MTB skill abilities. We split into groups, so we can ride with mates of similar radness. And email will be sent out before camp with more details.
