We want program registration to be easy and fair, so we will run this program's registration with a random selection process. Everyone will have one week to pre-register their participant(s) for Little Bellas. Pre-registration does not guarantee a spot, and we do not collect payment during the pre-registration period. After pre-registration closes, one of two things will happen: a) if the program is full or over capacity, we will use a random selection process to determine who gets in; those who are not selected will be placed on a waitlist or b) everyone who pre-registered will be accepted into the program and we will transition to our usual first come first serve registration to fill the remaining slots.
Summer's coming!! Although the trees might be a little bare now and the trails are little leaf covered and muddy, the kid's classic question, What are we doing today? will happen and parents need to be prepared. We have the perfect remedy to quench this curiosity and answer this question. The Little Bellas Half-Day Mountain Bike Camp!
Held at Bear Creek Lake Park, in Lakewood, the CO Half-Day Camp is an all-girls mountain biking camp offering a great progression in mountain biking skills for all abilities. It incorporates both basic mountain bike skills and mechanics, with trail riding and games. We focus on having fun, playing lots of games, and finding adventure on the trails of Bear Creek. Making new friends, learning skills, riding some sweet trails, and laughing our way through the mornings are all top priorities!
Financial assistance is available if needed and we also have equipment available through our Gear Up program! Please communicate any of these needs when filling out the registration form for the program.
Inclement Weather Protocol: In the event of lightning and thunderstorms, we will not cancel program days. Instead, programs will move inside to a pre-determined lightning safe structure and will continue camp activities indoors.
Lakewood, CO Program Lead
Dawn came into mountain biking in her twenties, in the same way many women "discover" mountain biking: she got together with a group of other like-minded ladies who were out to seek some adventure on some mountain trails. She was hooked. And in Colorado? Outdoor adventures a-plenty! A native of Colorado, Dawn has and does jump into as many things outdoors as possible, paddleboarding, hiking, yoga on rocks, camping, fishing, skiing, and pickleball, which we assume, doesn't actually require a pickle. All this while being a mother to 5 daughters and 2 sons, in a combined family, and a grandmother (we don't believe it) to 5 grandsons and 2 granddaughters and being a Little Bellas mentor for two years and now Program Lead! Get this woman a cape.
