El Grupo’s Summer Bike Camp!
We are proud to have Tucson Medical Center as our title sponsor for El Grupo’s Summer Bike Camp 2018! Participating in Youth Summer Bike Camp is about empowerment, building confidence, and above all- FUN! And now we have more nutrition education, as well!
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.
Extended Day adds only $40!
Financial assistance available based upon need. We are currently blocking the rest of the spots for the full day option for those requiring financial assistance.
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!
NEW!! Extended Day Nutrition Camp 12:30 – 4:30 Monday – Thursday by Tucson Medical Center:
Fueling the Fun
Summary: Doing all the fun things we love, like riding, running and swimming, requires energy. Over the week, we are going to play with food to learn how different foods fuel our body, and how to make some yummy things that will give us energy to do what we love. We will have cooking contests, share and sample new recipes each day! LIMITED SPOTS!
