PORCA is teaming up with local mountain bike coach Emily Slaco to run a 4 week after school camp this spring for Pemberton kids to develop their mountain bike skills on local trails. Basic cycling skills are required, children must be comfortable using hand brakes and gears, and ready to make the progression from the sidewalk to the trails.
Participants will meet the coaches at Signal Hill Elementary School at 3pm, ride to the Community Centre with coaches to store their bags in cubbies before heading out on to the trails. Groups will be kept intentionally small with a 6:1 kid to coach ratio to ensure coaching is effective and participants remain safe at all times, the May/June camps are capped at 12 participants.
Registration opens Monday April 2 at 9AM and will close when the camps reach capacity or 2 days before the first camp date – whichever comes first; a wait list will be held once the camps are filled.
