Bike Camp

 

Bike Camp is a fun and educational summer day camp program. Campers learned how to get around town safely while going on fun and eventful bike rides and also learned how to maintain and perform small repairs on their bicycles.  Throughout the two weeks, instructors and Bike Depot volunteers led campers on progressive rides from 2-30 miles in length, stopping along the way for fun activities and Field Trips. 

 

Bike Camp teaches youth the various benefits of bicycling: as a means of transportation, a fun outdoor activity and as physical exercise.  The Bike Camp's core philopsophies are centered around teamwork and community building.
