The true spirit of mountain biking is being out in the woods with your friends and having a great time. This is what Travel Camp is all about. While we cover performance-related topics like pacing, climbing, descending, technique, and nutrition – as well as hold dedicated skills lessons – our primary objective is to experience mile after mile of the greatest trails in the southeast! With that, every year campers are amazed with just how much stronger they become and how much their skills advance by the end of the week. Multiple hours on the bike fly by, especially when taking in new trails each day. Then, when you actually sit down and add up all the hours and miles your rode over the course of the camp, it is no secret why you made the improvements you did!

Virginia is arguably the best place in the United States to ride a mountain bike, and this camp showcases ever reason why! Often referred to by counselors as a mountain bike “lifestyle” camp, the Mountain Bike Travel Camp takes advantage of everything that makes fat-tire riding so great in the state of Virginia. Each day, campers experience brand new trails in all-day epic rides. From the extended climbs and descents of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the flow and technical nature of the Piedmont, there is no shortage of world-class riding.
Some of the best multipurpose trails you will find anywhere. Mainly machine-built, the primary loop is a roller coaster ride of a good time, and a newly-completed Advanced Loop presents challenges that will test the skills of even the most experienced mountain bikers.
Home to the legendary Shenandoah 100 mountain bike race, Stokesville Lodge boasts access to hundreds of miles of big-mountain trails as well as five miles of machine-built single track on the campground property. This day will include a 3-hour loop of the first section of the SM100 followed by an afternoon or riding trails at the campground.
