Teen Boys Mountain Biking Summer Camp
This exciting program is for campers who enjoy mountain biking and want to gain experience with this activity. These campers will travel to Michigan's Upper Peninsula where they will enjoy biking in the Hiawatha National Forest overlooking Lake Superior's Munising Bay.
Campers will bike throughout the forest working their way to Grand Island. On Grand Island (near Munising, MI), the campers will bike the bluffs and be treated to incredible vistas of The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. This seven day/six night trip is the perfect introduction to riding on more serious biking trails.
Campers must provide their own 18 or 21-speed mountain bike.
The following list is detailed and specific for the Viking Biking trip.
A local bike store will rent bikes and equipment if the camper is not able to bring their own. Call the camp office if you are interested soon after registration.
- Mountain bike (a well built, quality bike is required, 18 or 21 speeds recommended)
- Bike helmet
- Bike repair kit and extra tubes
- Biking gloves
