Welcome to the Ayr Academy at Highland Mountain Bike Park

Here at Highland we understand how important choosing a summer camp experience is for you and your family and that’s why we’re here to help make the adventure seeking a little easier.

Ayr Academy is a multi-day overnight mountain bike summer camp for youth between 13 and 18 years old. There’s no need to be intimidated, we cater to all rider abilities. Whether a first timer on a bike or near pro, we can accommodate.

And the fun doesn’t end on the mountain. When not riding campers have the freedom to relax in the camp lounges or participate in other activities such as video editing, basketball, dodgeball and more.

We strive to select coaches that ascribe to our values and want to spend as much time at camp as the campers. On top of that, our coaches are respected professionals in the mountain bike industry; they have a vast knowledge in the sport and what it takes to succeed. (Click here for Coaches)

Camp Safety

At the Ayr Academy safety is our highest priority. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that everyone on and off the mountain not only feel secure, but that they are protected by the strictest of protocol.

At the base lodge we have a full service first aid office able to address any situation. Highland Patrol mans the office and slopes and is comprised of highly trained professionals. Everyone at highland, staff, public, and campers are constantly under the watchful eye of Highland Patrol.

Additionally, the Ayr Academy’s low camper to coach ensures a high degree of safety. Campers are always with coaches/counselors on the hill, at the dorms, and on the Ayr Shuttle.

Camp Rules

  • NO Drugs & Alcohol
  • NO weapons, violence or abusive language
