Viking Biking Program

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 many of the trails used by the "Superior Bike Fest" and "Ore to Shore" bike races near Marquette. This seven day/six night trip is on some of the highest rated mountain biking trails in the Upper Peninsula.

Campers will bike on different parts of the trails each day. They will establish a base camp in Marquette and be able to swim and enjoy Lake Superior as well. This trip is the perfect introduction to riding on more serious biking trails.
