Pedalheads is excited to announce its popular bike camps are open this summer – albeit in fewer places and a number of new safeties involved.
Calgary parents know and love Pedalheads Summer Camps. Many Calgary kids have done everything from learning bike safety to getting rid of their training wheels through a Pedalhead program. But did you know that Pedalheads is more than learning to ride a bike (as exciting as that moment is!)? Registration is now open for Pedalheads, and you can choose from Pedalheads Bike camps, Pedalheads Trail camps, and even Pedalheads Sports camps. Plus, depending on your child’s age, you can choose from half or full-day camps and even combine the bike and sport options.
This summer, help your kids stay active, have fun outside, and keep busy learning new skills with Pedalheads Bike, Trail, or Sport Camps!
Pedalheads Bike offers exciting summer camps that give your kids an opportunity to build strength, improve their biking skills, and for the younger ones, get off their training wheels! The variety of activities keeps the camps interesting. Skills are broken down into manageable chunks with plenty of opportunities to practice and master them before moving on and building on earlier skills. Don’t forget to pack extra snacks, as the kids get extra hungry after all that activity!
Kids 4 and up: There are 6 levels for children ages 4 and up, so you can find a level that’s just right for maximum enjoyment and appropriate challenge. (See the requirements for each level on the website.) With small camp sizes and positive reinforcement, kids of every level will see improvement in their biking skills. Besides improving their biking proficiency, children will learn important biking safety and age-appropriate maintenance skills.
Kids under 4: If you have children under 4, there are also some classes just for them! The Riding Rookies Camp gives tots who are 2 a chance to practice their skills with a parent in attendance. Kids ages 3 and 4 can check out the Trikes ‘N’ Trainers or Balance Bikers Camps.
The Pedalheads Trail Camps are for anyone 4 years and older who wants to develop trail riding skills and loves adventures! Kids will get to explore the local area along the bike trails and continue to develop skills such as riding on various surfaces, riding up and down hills, and advancing to tackling tough trails for the older kids. They will also learn related bike-safety and maintenance skills.
There are three levels for Pedalheads Trail. Novice for ages 4 and up, Junior for ages 7 and up, and Intermediate for ages 9 and up. These camps give kids an adventure in the great outdoors with the opportunity to discover how strong and accomplished they can be!
Pedalheads Sport offers three-hour multi-sport summer camps for kids ages 4 – 8, divided into two levels for maximum success. This camp focuses on eight sports: soccer, archery, gymnastics, softball, racquet sports, track and field, hockey, and basketball, allowing kids to see which sports they enjoy most and where they excel. The camp ends with kids using their new skills to navigate a dynamic obstacle course while being cheered on by an audience of parents and caregivers. The goal is to teach your child fundamental skills for a variety of sports in a fun, engaging, and positive environment that builds confidence and independence. Kids also have the option of doing an all-day bike and sport combo camp.
Much like the Pedalheads bike classes, skills are broken down into manageable chunks and are progressive. Children have the opportunity to participate in a variety of drills and activities in order to allow them ample time to practice each skill. Instructors provide children with plenty of feedback and practice time during the camp. The focus is on building excitement for daily events.
