Throughout the year, we host a series of one and two day biathlon camps for adults. These camps provide fun skill development for novice and experienced biathletes alike.
In order to participate in these camps, you must be a registered participant with Biathlon Canada, US Biathlon or equivalent for the 2018-2019 season. Registration with Biathlon Canada is available here: https://zone4.ca/register.asp?id=17846
Our Advanced Camps are for athletes ages 19 and older who have prior competitive biathlon experience. In addition to providing technical training for skiing and shooting, these camps will include workshops on various topics such as ski preparation, rifle maintenance, and race tactics.
Our Novice Camps are for novice and recreational participants ages 19 and older. Have you been introduced to biathlon and want to try it some more? The camps feature fun drills and games that focus on developing the fundamentals of skiing and shooting, and are designed to keep people engaged in the sport of biathlon and to provide a pathway to our Masters Biathlon program and Advanced Camps. While they are for new participants, our Novice Camps are not intended to be a first introduction to the sport. Participants must have prior skate skiing experience and have participated in a Biathlon Series event or other introductory biathlon lesson prior to participating in our Novice Camps.
Please note there is limited space in the camps: 8 participants for the advanced camps and 6 participants for the novice camps.
