Want to squeeze in 3 additional days of camp this summer and like to get your wheels off the ground?This camp is suited for intermediate riders who are already comfortable with 1 foot drops and the Luna Jump Line and want more camp time dedicated to improving their drops and jumps technique. The Evergreen Coaches will focus on wheel lifts, manuals, drops, jumps, and high speed cornering which will help build your confidence to tackle more built features and technical challenges on the trail. Be sure to come prepared for lots of fun! NOTE: This is not a freeride camp or a camp suited for advanced riders. The drops and jumps will be limited to small and medium size (1/2 ft to 2 ft high). You will be spending a greater proportion of camp time working on getting your wheels off the ground than our other dirt camps.
