Participating in Youth Summer Bike Camp is about empowerment, building confidence, and above all- FUN!
Through our Youth Summer Bike Camp program your child’s confidence, knowledge, and skills increase in a safe, fun and peer-inspired environment. Activities focus on developing safe-riding skills, mechanical knowledge, and bike handling for each skill level, as well as exposure to health and wellness, environmental stewardship, air quality issues, and recycled art through a series of hands-on experiences.
Each week long camp session costs $175. Financial assistance available based upon need.
Campers begin and end each day at El Grupo’s Clubhouse located at 610 N. 9th Ave, near 5th Street and west of Stone Ave, just north of downtown. Campers begin the day at 8am and end at 12:30pm.
Camp is designed for youth aged 7-13 years old. Perfect for Middle School aged youth!
