So I have been lucky enough to know the camp director of a local camp that is close to my place. They have an indoor gym that has a skatepark in it, it's not huge but it's a fun little place to mess around in and with living in Minnesota it's really nice to have because the Camp director lets me use it whenever I want. He is also letting me do a BMX Freestyle camp the last weekend of September. They are also letting us build a pump track and dirt trails out there, which I am hoping we can have a few jumps in by the freestyle camp. Since this is the first year and we haven't had a ton of time to plan what I have going on is the park section (which you can see in the video) and in the gym we will do a few boxes, and rails, and then like I said hopefully have a couple dirt jumps done outside by then.

So what I have come to you guys to ask is just for some ideas as to what we can do besides teaching kids tricks and stuff, basically like games what I've thought of so far is:

High Hop
Some kind of race to see who can put tubes in, tires on, and air them up, and put them on the bike the fastest
Footdown

Do you guys have any ideas?

And just yesterday me and some friends filmed this little promo at the camp:



Any input and ideas such as if you were to go to a camp what would you like to do and see, etc. Thanks a lot guys!

Rattiest bike that is rideable, Nicest bike, best one hander, biggest 90, most broken spokes, longest icepick stall, longest footjam, craziest costume and so on.

Make contests ANYONE could win, so not just the kids who shred win stuff.

Have some giveaways, and maybe even a little Jam based on age or skill.

hop contests are always boring as shit ditch those.
I'd go with;
Higher air (one 6-8foot quarter with the height bars)
biggest drop to flat
sketchiest bike
best costume
biggest 90 is always funny
and do best slam but don't tell them about it and just wait till the end

Do most improved (but actual improvement not just the awardnfor worst person there)
Do a game of bike with EVERYONE IN THE CAMP

Get a hella long seatpost and have people do the best trick on the bike with it

My local park on Go Skate Day had a helmet raffle. Everyone put their helmets in a pile and they spun a guy around blind folded and he picked up a random helmet. Helmet owner wins a small prize.

Most people on one bike, has to be able to pedal atleast once and move atleast 10ft without anybody falling/putting their foot down. If there is a tie, whoever can go the furthest wins.

Best trick with more than one person on the bike.

Bike limbo.

Fastest 180 flat.

Longest fakie/manual/nose manual.
