At Bike Camp, we teach campers how to maintain their bikes, plan their routes, set personal goals, debrief about their successes and challenges, and, most importantly, how to have FUN and be SAFE on two wheels!
Bike Camp Registration: NOW OPEN for 2018
Bike Camp is the best thing that’s ever happened! A two-week summer camp designed around all things bicycles, Bike Camp teaches your child to be a safe and responsible bike rider in an environment built on communication and teamwork. Our outstanding camp counselors and Bikes Together Volunteers lead children on a quest for adventure and knowledge while teaching them bicycle maintenance skills and how to safely navigate an urban environment on two wheels. This includes hands-on instruction by expert mechanics and safely designed city bike rides between 3 and 30 miles. Our camps run during the summer months and are two weeks long, Monday thru Friday from 9am-3pm.
“It was the best camp ever! My son learned so much about bikes and the rules of the road, but was also good and tired at the end of each day! He loved it and we couldn’t be happier.”
“My children have done some impressive “adventure” camps where they have mountain biked, kayaked and rock climbed. I was worried that they would think this was boring in comparison. They absolutely loved it and never complained of it being boring.”
Bike Camp is designed to promote teamwork and community building, to develop and inspire campers to become leaders, team players, and valuable community members. We seek to nurture good decision making and help campers develop a sense of autonomy and safe riding skills. For this reason, we give campers a say in the decision-making process. Good bike riders make good people!

After, we will only offer a full refund if there is currently another participant on the waitlist for the same camp. If there is NOT any other participants on the waitlist for a camp, we cannot offer a refund for camp. We can though make the space available and if registered we will offer a refund. No refunds will be offered under any circumstances 7 days or less prior to a camp starting.
A full refund for Bike Camp is $450. There is a $50 fee that will not be refunded under any circumstances.
Bike Camp Groups
At Bike Camp we do our best to make sure your child has a fun experience. That’s why it’s vitally important that your child attends the correct camp group. If your child falls into an age that crosses two different sessions, pick the session that corresponds to their bike experience. If your 9-year-old has been shredding dirt since before they could walk, sign them up for the intermediate Hubs group. If your 11-year-old only learned to ride a bike two years ago and is excited but nervous to attend Bike Camp, put them in the intermediate Hubs group. Help us make their experience even more awesome!
