Dirt Divas

Mountain bike & empowerment program
for middle school girls!

Dirt Divas is a one-week summer day camp that helps girls cultivate confidence, courage and leadership through outdoor adventure. Girls entering 6, 7 and 8th grades practice mountain bike skills and bicycle mechanics, as well as art, games, swimming and self-defense. It’s a safe, supportive, girl-centered atmosphere that emphasizes leadership, team-building and healthy body image – with lots of fun woven in!  A place where girls are encouraged to build strong bodies and minds in the beautiful Vermont outdoors.
