The hardest part about getting involved with an activity is finding one you're interested in and having a chance to get your foot in the door, especially if you're a kid.

Your kid may not be into sports, learning to crochet probably isn't on their list, and they may not be interested in doing art. However, if they are interested in riding their mountain bike and going on adventures, a group in the Casper area may be the perfect match for your kid.

The group is called CAMBYR.







CAMBYR isn't new to Casper. It has been around for 14 years, and its goal is to:

Promote self-confidence, health, and leadership and build and promote community and family bonds through interscholastic mountain bike racing.

Since the group isn't tied to just one of the Casper high schools, it's open to any high school student who has a mountain bike and would like to participate. CAMBYR gives them another outlet to learn and grow while competing against other high school kids.

Since the group isn't connected directly to the schools, fundraising is a big part of how they can travel and compete. Travel, lodging, food, and gas are all significant expenses for the team since they need to travel to Colorado for their races.

If you think your high school student may be interested or want to help fund the group, get more information on how your student can get involved.
