What's Included

This camp is meant to challenge our most experienced Little Bellas, focusing on handling skills, taking obstacles at speed, and riding fast. Depending on trail conditions, we will ride at different trail networks throughout Chittenden County to utilize the best terrain for a challenging progression. Our goal is to split into two groups on rides to reduce the amount of time stopping and increase personal instruction. We will also include a nutrition component in the afternoon, where girls will learn knife skills, make healthy riding snacks for the next day, and have a smoothie iron chef competition. We will also discuss food as fuel and eating locally. This camp includes a Little Bellas custom Primal Jersey and goodie bag, and snacks.

About This Organizer

Little Bellas brings together girls, ages 7 to 16, and female mentors in our summer programs.  We use mountain biking as a vehicle to teach the importance of teamwork, goal-setting, and participation in a healthy lifestyle.  Once a week during the summer or during a multi-day camp, mentors and girls ride together at a local trail network and focus on improving skills as well as participate in team-building activities. The program is organized around a curriculum that builds upon previous skills and girls are broken up into groups based on age and ability. After the group ride, the groups participate in games that incorporate that day’s skill focus.   Each session always includes the all-important snack.

Nationals camps take place at large national level events and allow the girls the opportunity to meet lots of nationally ranked pros.  Regional camps often have visits from pros, and the curriculum and mentoring groups are consistent throughout the summer.
