Bikes and Barnyards Summer Camp
An Abundance NC Youth Camp with Triangle Bikeworks
Monday, June 12 (9 AM) thru Friday, June 16 (5 PM)
Get Ready to Have the Best Summer Ever!
Bikes and Barnyards Summer Camp is an opportunity for young people to learn and practice lessons in leadership, health, and wellness. We work to give each child the chance to experience achievement and environmental stewardship through bicycle-related education.
If you know a beginning to intermediate level cyclist between ages 10 and 14 who loves to ride their bike and wants to challenge themselves while learning new skills and having a blast – this is the summer camp for them! The 2017 Summer Bike Camp takes place during the week after school lets out and is about as much fun as you can possibly have on a bike.
Love to ride your bike? Looking for a challenge? Want to learn new skills and have a blast with new friends? If you are between ages 10 and 14 and a beginning to intermediate cyclist, then this camp is for you!
We’ll meet at 08:45 AM and begin learning by 9:00 AM. Then we’ll wrap up the day and ready for pickup at 4:45 PM. Except for Thursday night! That’s when we’ll spend the night in the park and camp under the stars.
Days begin with basic skills work such as shifting and braking, and progress to corning, navigating obstacles and safe cycling before applying all of those new-found techniques on fun, single track trails and bike lanes.
After the first day of learning, laughing, and riding at the Plant in Pittsboro, we will move to Sparkroot Farm to learn the right way to mess around in the woods; be a good steward of the forest, ecosystems and nature, and learn to cook with farm produce. We’ll learn about wild foraging, milking goats, and how to make cheese, and cool off in the swimming hole! Thursday we’ll ride to our hearts’ content and camp out under the stars – even preparing a meal over the camp fire.
After this camp we bet you’ll never want to go a day without riding your bike again!
