April 30, 2009 (Calgary, ON) – Choosing the right summer camp to send your child or teenager to can prove to be a real challenge. Not only do you want the price, the actual activities and the timing to be right, but you also want him / her to be excited about it. Well, chances are your kid will be telling you about BaSE before you even hear about it which is a good start in the hunt of a solution to your summer mental health.
Entering its first season of operation, Biking and Snowboarding Experience AKA BaSE will be providing a variety of summer programs for riders in Calgary and the surrounding area. Armed with a shuttle van and trailer, BaSE represents an opportunity for young riders to experience trails they would not usually have access to while developing their skills and meeting new friends, all while under the watchful eyes of experienced coaches.
Most BaSE programs will meet at Canada Olympic Park, and from there riders will either session COP’s recently re-designed trail network or hop into the BaSE van to sample some of the best freeride playgrounds that Southern Alberta and BC have to offer.
For the 2009 season, BaSE coaches will be riding the beautiful new Scythe FR/DH bike from Banshee. Check out bansheebikes.com to see why Banshee is quickly finding itself at the top of many riders’ wish lists in Western Canada. Along with Banshee Bikes, the killer list of sponsors includes Sombrio, SixSixOne, Kenda, and Oakley. As a new company in its first year of operation, BaSE feel truly fortunate to have the support of some of the best names in the industry, and it just goes to show the commitment these companies have to developing our sport.
BaSE will kick off its inaugural season in June with weekend and evening programs, while the focus shifts to week-long summer camps in July and August, including the much anticipated “Okanagan Attack”. For more information on BaSE MTB Camps, visit www.thebase.ca.
