Bike Camp

@Lincoln Christian School (gym & parking lot)

Cost: FREE

Planned, staffed, and executed exclusively by volunteers, Bike Camp was established in 2008 and has occurred nearly every year since. This camp was designed to help kids with special needs learn how to ride a typical bike without training wheels, using a protocol from the book Bicycling with Children: A Complete How-to Guide by Trudy E. Bell. In the most recent years, bike camp has been offered free of charge to our participants.  We typically have at least one volunteer paired with each bike camp rider. Previous volunteers have been pediatric Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech Therapists, as well as high school students, college students and other community members who are interested in teaching bike riding skills. It is advantageous to have pediatric therapists among the volunteers to utilize clinical skills to modify and make adaptations for the various bike riders’ needs. This has been paramount to the success of bike camp!
