WHAT IS AN ADVENTURE BASECAMP EXPERIENCE?
Basecamp Experiences were born out of years of taking people into the outdoors and watching the positive effects it has on individuals. Set in the outdoors, away from day to day life, you can get the most from your Mountain Biking experience. It's an opportunity to spend time with new and old friends, share stories, ideas, and leave connected to the experience. But most importantly they produce a sense of community. A place to connect, share, have fun and come way inspired, energized and with a renewed sense of purpose.
FRIDAY - ARRIVAL DAY
You should arrive at the campgrounds by 4pm where you will be greeted by the guides/instructors and introduced to the basecamp experience.
