Advanced Bike Camp

Program Description

This option is available for youth who have some prior experience with bicycle mechanics and riding longer distances. This camp is perfect for those who have already participated in Build-A-Bike Summer Camp, who regularly attend Youth Shop, or who have a particular interest in biking and/or mechanics. This camp gives youth opportunities to explore mechanics, community service and bicycling on a deeper level. Campers will learn advanced mechanics and welding, explore different styles of riding such as BMX and mountain biking, and complete a 30 mile overnight bike ride to Lums Pond State Park! We’ll spend the night in the campground and check out the Go Ape! ropes course and zipline located in the park the following morning. The route to Lums Pond State Park is flat, and there will be plenty of adult chaperones and a support vehicle to ensure everyone’s safety. However, please be advised that campers will be riding on roads for part of the route. This camp is not recommended for youth who have not mastered basic bike handling skills, or have never ridden at least 5 miles at a time. All necessary equipment (sleeping bag, bike, etc.) is provided to campers who do not have their own. Includes dinner and accommodations Thursday night and breakfast Friday morning. Campers can be dropped off at 8:30am and picked up at 4:30pm from our shop at 1500 N. Walnut Street every day except for Thursday afternoon and Friday, due to the overnight field trip. Families are invited to join us for an end-of-camp barbecue on Friday from 4-6pm. Families who are unable to make the barbecue will be able to pick their campers up from the shop at 6:30pm.
