Take your riding to the next level and ride steeper, faster and bigger than ever before! These great camps for young biking enthusiasts were launched in 2012 and have been incredibly popular ever since.
We now have 4 great camps on offer for 2018!
New for 2018 is our Gravity Extra Camp which has more of a downhill focus, aimed at slightly more experienced bikers and will include two extra uplift days (reflected in the slightly higher price compared to the Gravity Camp the week before).
To achieve these aims, the camps are limited to those aged 11-16 who are already confident riding steep single track trails with rocks, roots and small drops in most conditions as well as taking some air. You will be asked, when booking, where you are currently riding and where you have ridden recently. You may well be currently taking part in a regional or national race series.
If you would like to use this camp as your Gold DofE Residential, please inform the office team when booking.

During instructed sessions, expert coaches will be tutoring (to be announced) and Abernethy staff will be accompanying the sessions.
In non-instructed time, Abernethy staff will be supervising you and organising activities. From making sure you make a packed lunch and respect the centre and its facilities to joining in with the coaching sessions, our team will generally be looking out for you during your time away from home.
