BOSS – Basics of Shred Skills
Five full days of fun awaits you at Sweetlines Dirt Shredders camp! At Duthie Hill professional coaches will lead groups on trail rides and teach beginner to advanced riding skills. The focus of the camp will be on mountain bikes, but options like group games, crafts, bike art, and free time to play in the woods will be available.
