Learn to Ride Bike Camp
Rising 1st through rising 3rd graders
Learning to ride a bike is a rite of passage, a skill that once acquired is never forgotten. Teach a child to ride and you have opened the door to a lifetime of fresh-air fun and two-wheeled adventures. This camp is for kids who want to learn how to ride a bike and for those who are ready to say goodbye to the training wheels. Learn how to start, stop, pedal, coast and balance, as well as basic riding skills, braking, steering and turning. Daily activities include group and private instruction, confidence courses, bike riding games and short tours when ready. Groups are determined by ability. Participants receive a camp T-shirt, sticker and report card.

Rain Day Activities: In the event of inclement weather, our campers will be engaged in indoor activities that focus on the following skills:
