Through the years I have watched the sport evolve and with it so have the camps, the staff and the material we teach. I have come to understand this sport in a way that I can teach it to all levels of riders. I work with children in their first steps of biking to adolescents racing on the Canadian cuircuit. I work with women trying to get back in shape and even older men wanting to get better and faster. No matter what you age, your weight, your fitness level, there is an aspect of mountain biking that works for everyone.

Working at Dirt Camp is the best job because I get to show kids what I like doing most. We have a super tight crew that makes sure your kids have a blast all week. At the end of the day I make sure all the campers bikes are ready to roll the next day.
Can’t join us for a full week of camp and don’t have a ride to Bromont? Join us on Velobus for some private coaching or rent some Specialized test bikes.

I attended Dirt Camp for 3 years before having the opportunity to work at Dirt Camp. I’m not going to say its not fun and I’m not going to say I don’t love it but I will say that at the end of the day, we sleep like logs! Riding is my life and I really enjoying passing on the skills I’ve learnt on to the all the dirtcampers. I expect to be here a while!

Whats up guys my name is Austin, and I’m from Ottawa. I’ve been riding bikes since I was five years old, and been working at DC for the last 5 years. It’s definitely the best job in the world because I get to combine my favorite sport with teaching kids, which for me is super rewarding! From long days on the trail to stories by the campfire, Dirt Camp is the place to be. Peace out!

Man, working at Dirt Camp is by far the best way to spend a summer! Out in the sun, on my bike and behind my lens is a great combination.
It’s a real treat being the camp photographer because I really get to capture the fun of each moment spent with the group!
Cheers

Dirt Camp has become my life in the summer. That is my family. We eat, drink and sleep mountain biking and we do as a crew that becomes inseparable. From the end of school almost to when it starts up again, my life is a blur of biking, kids, flat tires, water slides, lasagna, great trails, prank jokes and more biking. This is life and I’m all in. I was camper for 3 years, I’ve been a coach for 2.
