Cascade Summer Camps 2018
Looking for a great kids summer camp? Cascade Bicycle Club offers week-long day camps in Magnuson Park and White Center which are loaded with biking, trail adventures, and lots of hands-on learning for ages 6-15 years. Our bike-based programs promote skill development, exploration, physical wellness, personal responsibility, and teamwork. The camps also emphasize care for the equipment we use, and the land on which we live.
Under the careful guidance of our experienced counselors, campers discover the trails, parks, and urban wilds of our much-loved Puget Sound region. Join new and old camp friends while creating nature connection, learning new cycling skills, and enjoying games, arts and crafts! Activities and skills will be tailored for the specific ages of each camp session. Some of the activities offered may include basic bike maintenance skills, developing safe riding habits, and learning about pedestrian and biking infrastructure. Includes camp t-shirt.
NEW for 2018! Our camps now have themes in which rides and activities will be based.
- ART camp: Experiment and play with a wide range of materials to explore bicycling through art. Find inspiration in old bike components, cycling themed art projects, and ways to use two wheels to create new masterpieces.
- STEM camp: Join other young riders to explore the worlds of science, technology, engineering, and math using bicycles as a gateway.
- NATURE camp: Explore local ecology around neighborhoods using bikes as a means to do it. See and identify birds, learn about plan species, and explore waterways in this nature inspired week of biking.
- Bike Packing FUNdamentals camp: Learn about what bike packing is and gain new hands-on experience and knowledge in what bike to ride, how to pack gear, what equipment to bring, how to plan a trip, and much more (for ages 13-15 who have previously attended a Cascade camp).
