One of the greatest experiences your child will ever have is to drive an off-road motorcycle. It would have been rare to think 20 years ago, that a summer camp like this would not even exist today. But that is the reality, and this is our motivation – giving kids a chance to ride at one of the only motocross summer camps in the country. Remember the day you learned to ride a bike? You wobbled down the street or driveway with Mom or Dad running alongside yelling, “Pedal, pedal, pedal !” And then like magic, you found your balance and took off on your own. That exhilarating sense of freedom is one you never forget and can easily recapture every time you hop on a bike. That same feeling happens from the first time your child “vrooom vroooms” the throttle on a motorcycle and takes off on their own!

Fridays 1:00pm-2:00pm are “Show Day. All parents come to the Ranch on this day to watch their campers and take them home.
Keeping It SafeAll children will go through riding orientation and will be with a coach all the time on the ranch. From our practice arena to trails and motocross tracks, safety is our first concern. Instructors are always watching or instructing. Our training curriculum is not based on competition; we teach the kids to have a fun time on the motorcycles without racing. We use an interesting mix of ranch activities during rest breaks, to get children to talk and express themselves, creating a wonderful experience for the Campers.
It’s Not all Dirt bikes – Other ActivitiesWe want all children to have a fun and safe time. We have different levels of tracks and trails to make it entertaining for all riders. We use a lot of the ranch at breaks for other activities such as fishing, exploring, playing games in the Rec center or socializing with new friends . We end every day with a video review. Children have access all the time to carts with drinks and snacks included for all riders, the Rec center with a/c and a swimming pool.
Ride Time and How our Motorcycle Drills workBelow is video of a new child learning to ride for his first time. This is after 30 minutes of what we call “motorcycle calisthenics” – exercises to get the body and hands in control of the motorcycle. This is the first drill with the motorcycle running that we preform and properly done it is non-eventful. Every child will have fun and the safety of our drills will insure their learning the correct way to ride at our summer motorcycle camp.
Riding time is 20 minutes on and off with groups taking turns in both morning and afternoon riding sessions. While off the bike, campers will hydrate, snack, watch other groups’ ride time and learn from counselor instruction. Before they know it, they’re back on for more ride time. This happens multiple times in the morning until lunchtime and right back to it after lunch. Finally, all riding ends daily at 2pm and we all head for the pool! This is a routine that we have developed over the years and it works. Riding motorcycles is hard work, on the body and the mind – even more with children – so food, rest and recuperation is key to safety, success and to having FUN!
Iron Horse Motorcycle Camp provides all the fun you can have on a dirt bike. We will teach and guide your children to become riders. Half of the kids that come to us don’t know how to ride at all while the other half have learned some skills. We take them all and provide a place where kids can come and make friends, memories and enjoy the adventure of riding motorcycles.
