NJ Rocks Mountain Bike Camp brings campers an action packed week in the woods surrounding Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation and beyond! Daily mountain bike treks will visit area state parks. Come midweek, the campers will leave Camp Somers and venture to a nearby Pump Track for some BMX inspired riding. Riders can expect to be challenged but never pushed beyond their own capabilities. Camp staff will coach campers throughout the week, incorporating skills clinics into the treks. This camp is only held one week each August.
Please be sure to review the refund policy before registering for camp.
