This camp takes place in the Principality of Andorra in July. It is designed for boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 16 years who want to spend between 2 and 4 weeks practising their downhill (DH) bike skills. The only entry requirement is that they have basic cycling skills.
Unique camp in Spain of this type
Very good sports facilities
Participants need to travel to the sports grounds each day
It is necessary to hire the equipment
Apart from having fun, which is the main object of the camp, there is also a focus on learning English. Students will attend 15 English classes per week in addition to the cycling and other activities.
Around 25% of participants are from other countries, thus this is a great opportunity for students to make friends with other young people from all around the world and improve their English in a natural way, interacting with the people they meet.
