SHRED SOCIETY CAMP

New camp alert!
In this camp we will shred bikes, of course, but let’s also shred some social norms! Lead coaches Kat Sweet and Daniel Heller will look at society, marketing, social media, the messages we get about masculinity and femininity, and the labels we are given. How does this impact all of us? What can we do to make a better world for our youth? How can we better understand one another? Through mountain biking, we will create conversations that bring people together in this community of shred!

"I wanted to say thank you for the great experience you put together at the Dirt Shredders Camp this week. Our son Hudson loved it and is more stoked then ever to go riding. It hasn't always been easy to get him excited to go ride and I think the combinations of the coaches and the other kids were really great for him." - Kyle and Bridget
