About Our Camps
If you’re looking for a great kids summer camp, Grafton Trails offers week-long day camps loaded with exciting outdoor adventure, mountain biking and lots of hands-on learning for ages 6-15 years. The environmental camps promote physical fitness, personal responsibility and teamwork. The camps also emphasize care for the equipment we use, and the land on which we live.
Each camp session will include daily mountain bike rides and a variety of activities which facilitate a lifelong connection with the outdoors by enabling them to engage in multiple facets of the outdoor environment. Activities and skills will be tailored for the specific ages of each camp session. Some of the activities offered may include swimming, orienteering, disc golf, shelter building, trail design & building, search and rescue dog demos, knot tying and bike repair.

A mountain bike is required! We recommend having your bike serviced at a local bike shop before arriving at camp.
If you are bringing your own bike, it is a good idea to have a basic bike tool kit and tire repair kit with a spare tube.
A bike helmet is mandatory! Please be sure it fits properly.
Rental bikes are available at the center. You will need to contact the outdoor center directly to reserve the proper sized bike prior to camp. Bikes will be reserved on a first come-first served basis.
Synthetic clothing is highly recommended over cotton. You will need to be prepared to be outside in all weather conditions.
If registering for camp online, please be sure that you sign up for the correct session based on the child’s age. Otherwise, you will be contacted to change sessions as the camps are structured around ages. If you have a special request, please contact the center directly to discuss your individual needs.
Our Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program is designed for former campers and students, ages 16 years and older, with a high proficiency in mountain bike skills. CIT’s will work directly with the younger campers (ages 6-10 years) to help teach skill development and facilitate a positive, fun camp experience.
A commitment for the entire week long session is required. If you are interested in the program, please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) us a letter of interest detailing your mountain bike experience, Grafton Trails Summer Camp history and any previous work with younger children.
