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 bike camps, mountain bike camps, and even sports camps. Plus, the half-day camps are now longer (even for the little ones) with extra care options available to give parents more options for work, errands, or just taking a “brake”!
This summer, help your kids stay active, have fun outside, and keep busy learning new skills with Pedalheads Bike, Sport, or Mountain Bike Camps.
Pedalheads Bike represents both the regular and mountain bike summer camps. These exciting summer camps give your kids an opportunity to build strength, improve their biking skills, and for the younger ones, get off their training wheels! There are 6 levels and children ages 4 and up will find a level that’s just right. (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.
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!
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 Mountain Biking (PHMB) Camps are for anyone looking to develop new skills beyond level 3. These camps combine adventure in the great outdoors with the opportunity to discover the fun of mountain biking. The safe, supervised environment offers mountain bike instruction that focuses on the development of various mountain biking skills for kids ages 4 – 8, with more advanced levels for kids ages 8 – 15.
Pedalheads Sport is a three-hour multi-sport summer camps for kids ages 4 – 8. 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.
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.

If you have enjoyed a Pedalheads camp in the past, there have been a few changes, and they are for the better! The half-day camps are now a little longer: the new 3-hour camps make it easier to plan your day, plus you can add before-care to the morning camps and after-care to the afternoon camps. The little ones also enjoy a longer program, as the 60-minute tots programs have been extended to 90 minutes. Whatever you’re planning on doing while your kids are being active and learning new skills, you now have more time to do it! Register early for best selection; these camps are very popular.
