We want program registration to be easy and fair. We are transitioning all programs to a three week pre-registration period. With this new system, everyone will have three weeks to pre-register their participant(s) for Little Bellas. 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; or b) we will transition to our usual first come first serve registration to fill the remaining slots.
We hope this new process will ease some stress and help create a more fair registration system for all Little Bellas girls and families. See more information on our blog here.
Our EXPLORE Camps are designed for girls ages 11-13. We can’t wait to explore the outdoors on bikes with you!
Held at Catamount Outdoor Family Center, in Williston, VT, our Half Day EXPLORE Camps are all-girls mountain biking camps encompassing a great progression in mountain bike skills for a more advanced rider. There is still plenty of fun to be had and games played but with a bit more challenge to help promote advancing their bike skills further. We explore and adventure on the trails at Catamount but also travel to new trail networks in the area to give the girls a variety of terrain. Riding trails they may have never seen before enhances their ability to adapt to new obstacles and further advances their skills. It also creates a unique bonding environment with their other Little Bellas peers as they encounter new things on the trail and relay the information through numerous forms of communication like laughing, genuine surprise giggles, and "Whoa!".
We also use the mountain bike experience to help the girls gain confidence, build camaraderie other girls on bikes, seek out new adventures, and get outdoors! And who can't use those skills. Those are learning experiences your daughter can take with them their whole life!
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.
