The school holiday dates are: Saturday 10th of July to Sunday 25th of July, talking to parents they far prefer if the camps can be held on weekdays.

BOOK NOW: https://fareharbor.com/gravitynelson/items/316009/availability/678976127/book/
All camps will include one shuttle each morning to the top of a trail. Price is $300. Kids will need to bring appropriate protective gear, bikes in good condition, snacks and winter riding gear.
I had hoped to offer a grom camp,but with the trail closures we are going to be pretty short on trails they could ride, so it will have to wait until next holidays.
I am thinking of offering some FOD/GABE days under the title “Gravity Day Care”, probably 10-4 as well ideally on the Thursday 15th and Thursday 22nd. These will include sausages and bread, juicies, and use of the airbag as well as supervised fun and activities on the Field of Dreams. Kids can be dropped off for as much or as little of the day as you want. $100 for the full day. BOOK NOW:
Junior “Gorge Days”
