Raccoon Mountain Caverns
319 W Hills Dr,

Our 2-day camp gives you a chance to build up and clean up your toolbox of mountain biking skills; from the fundamentals to  wheels lifts, high-speed cornering, drops, technical features and so much more!  Join us for a full weekend of skills that will equip you to better handle a variety of terrain with speed and efficiency.

This comprehensive Ninja program allows you to put the entire ninja curriculum together into one epic weekend.  The camp kicks off with an overview of the foundational riding skills and builds up to more advanced material over the course of the weekend including jumping, high speed cornering, technical climbing/descending, drops and more. The weekend is taught in a progressive format meaning each skill builds on another, giving everyone an opportunity to progress at their own pace!

2-Day Camps that are designated as “Adventure” cover all the same curriculum as other 2-Day camps but in highly sought after destination riding locations. Adventure camps provide you with the same professional instruction as other Ninja clinics while allowing you to ride some of the best trails in the country.

Don’t worry, camps that aren’t designated as Adventure Camps will still challenge you and you’ll absolutely leave a better rider. We work hard to select the best teaching locations and around the country and you might be surprised by how great that local trail network is for learning.
