Summer Ride is a multi-day camp for 3rd to 7th graders interested in mountain biking and offers both day camp and overnight options. Campers of all abilities will learn new skills, develop more confidence, make new friendships, and take their riding to the next level. Riders have the opportunity to focus on specific freeride and downhill skills with an emphasis on safety and rider etiquette.

About Highland Mountain Bike Park


Off the mountain, the quality camp experience continues!

Summer Ride partners with a local private academy with an expansive campus located a short bus trip from Highland Mountain. Campers will live in the dormitory and have access to top-notch school facilities including the gym, dining hall, basketball court, sports fields, lounges, and more.

Food & Beverage

The Summer Ride camp price includes three meals a day, beverages and snacks. For overnighters, breakfast and dinner will be served in the school’s dining facility across from the Summer Ride Dorm. 

Plate/bag lunches will be served slope-side at the Highland Mountain Café, a full-service eatery in Highland’s base lodge.


When not riding on the mountain or in the HTC there’s plenty of off-slope entertainment.

Can’t sit still? Jump into one of many camp games, knockout or foam pit drop sessions.

Campers will be able to kick back in one of the school’s lounges equipped with pool tables, ping pong, foosball, and air hockey.

Make sure you come to camp well rested!

Do I have to be an Expert Rider?

You don’t have to be an expert rider

We welcome all riding levels Highland Mountain offers trails for a full spectrum of abilities. We’ve hosted first-timers to advanced riders with years of experience. Our coaching staff is trained to evaluate campers and group them into ability levels.

Practice makes perfect

Most of the Ayr Academy campers are intermediate riders who just want to improve their skills, learn to catch some air or hit a famous drop at Highland. Each day coaches will pick a valuable fundamental for their group to work on throughout the day.

What if I have a Special Diet?

We can accommodate many dietary needs. Meals always have a vegetarian option. On your enrollment forms, there will be space to describe in as much detail as possible any dietary needs. Please contact us with any questions.
