2022 Mountain Bike Kids Camp- ***Amazing rental bike fleet 2022***

This is a fun-filled and exciting way of exploring the great outdoors. Riding a winding mountain trail through forests, up and over hills, across streams and old farmlands, will focus your attention on each maneuver you make!

Each day the group will ride trails, use maps, and explore the area’s trail system.

Along the way stops may be made for hiking, snacks, looking for frogs, and more.

Instructors will teach participants safe riding technique, balance, ascending/descending, braking and bunny hopping.

COVID-19 Policy

No Refunds even if it is due to COVID concerns but you can receive a credit on all camps up to June 20th. If there is COVID Health issue you will receive a credit to be used on any of our camps up to 5 years. It is also transferable.

 

Since COVID-19 is a very fluid and constantly changing situation and while many public health and safety measures are being lifted in Ontario, provincial guidance and directives do remain in place for some sectors and should continue to be followed.  The government allowed business to make their own choices. We always strive to keep our camps as safe as possible but understand that many of you have grown tired of these restrictions. 

As per the Mandatory vaccination:

The requirement to be fully vaccinated has been suspended. We continue to strongly encourage you to get fully vaccinated and to get booster doses as soon as you become eligible, in order to protect yourself and the people around you. Based on the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and in alignment with the National Advisory Committee on Immunization. 

Although masking is no longer mandatory in Ontario, we highly recommend campers continue wearing a mask indoors especially when physical distancing may not be possible or proves to be challenging in crowded areas. Campers who take the bus to our Camp Fortune Facility will continue to wear a mask.

Please do complete a health-screening questionnaire  daily.
