Not sure what to do in camp to fill the time? One of our favorite things to do is to build a camp jump and jump our bikes. We improve our “air” skills, entertain the dogs and have fun!
We’ve built camp jumps all over the West and these are a few of our favorites:
- desert camp jump
- high desert camp jump
- alpine camp jump
- hoodoo camp jump
To build your own camp jump, follow these basic steps:
- Grab a chair and drink a beer or two (mandatory). Sit until bored.
- Scout the area for materials, quality of dirt and ride-in options.
- Build the jump. Finish with water, if necessary, and a good whack with a shovel.
- Jump your bike!*
