SUMMER DIRT CAMP
Evergreen West Sound has developed a summer dirt camp for your little shredder. These day camps meet 4 times during a two-week session in the evenings and will focus on skill development and building confidence on the pump track. It's perfect for younger riders who are looking to develop foundational skills on the bike and have a blast while doing it.
