Summer is coming and there are so many amazing camp opportunities for kids of all ages in the MRV. Here are just a few of the options;

Mad River Riders Rippers Summer Camp
Offered by the Mad River Riders for kids between the ages of 8 and 12 years old. This camp is presented in partnership with Stark Mountain Bike Works, Mad Bush Falls, and Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce. During each one week session, campers will learn mountain bike safety and maintenance, build confident riding techniques, and skills for riding our Valley terrain. Our coaches will build community through outdoor adventure and fitness allowing riders to develop endurance and character in a safe environment.  

Flight Experience for Youth (F.E.F.Y)
FEFY funds flight training, ground school, and aviation experiences for young people age 21 and younger eager to learn to fly. The programs that FEFY funds are run by Sugarbush Soaring at the Warren Sugarbush Airport. FEFY’s goal is to give young people the opportunity to experience the world of aviation. Through the process of learning to fly, youth gain skills that go well beyond learning to pilot an aircraft.
