SW Mountain Bike Club Annual Junior Camp @ Cycletrek Farm
Oct 28 @ 10:45 am – Oct 29 @ 1:00 pm

SWMTBC Annual Junior Camp weekend is back and promises to be heaps of fun and games on bikes….

You must register for this weekend via Nicole Munro 0428955840 or via email nmmmunro@hotmail.com.  This must include names of family members attending, ages and MTBA membership numbers if you have one.  ++

MTBA Members cost for the weekend will be $25 per person OR $70 per family group of 3 or more MTBA members.

Non MTBA members will be required to obtain a Recreational Day Licence for the weekend which will cost $7 per child or $10 per adult plus camp fees of $25 per person OR $70 for 3 or more family members.  This will give you Liability/Accident Insurance cover for the whole weekend.

Payment can be made on the weekend and you must RSVP to be able to attend. Bookings will not be accepted for those that cannot attend the whole weekend as the camp is structured in a way that does not allow for day trippers (sorry).   Children of all ages welcome.

This cost includes camping fees, toilet hire, shower and a weekend of guaranteed fun supplied by SWMTBC.

You will need to bring your own water, food and all camping equipment. There are toilets and a shower (3mins only). We will have one shared meal which will be a BBQ dinner on the Saturday night. Bring your own meat for this and a salad to share.  We will be bringing a BBQ for the weekend.  If you would like to bring bacon and eggs for a cook up on Sunday morning that would be lovely.

There will be plenty of free time during the day for free riding and practicing of skills. There will also be opportunities for trail/jumps building with guidance from Barrie.  This casual schedule is subject to change if required.
