Get Rid of Those Training Wheels! Pedalheads & Heroheads Summer Camps Are Now Registering

Pedalheads Summer Camps (Family Fun Calgary)

This summer break, your kids can stay active, outdoors and busy learning new skills with Pedalheads Bike Camps, Heroheads Multi-Sport Camps, and Pedalheads Mountain Biking Camps. If they’re just beginning their biking adventures, this could be the year they get rid of those training wheels!

Pedalheads

Pedalheads is an exciting summer camp that gives your kids an opportunity to build strength, improve their biking skills, and for the younger ones, even get off their training wheels! Children aged 4 – 12 can choose from full-day or half-day camps. 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.

Lots of variety in 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!

Depending on your child’s biking skills, Pedalheads has a level just right for them. See the requirements for each level on the website.

  • Level 1 – Newbees (Most Popular Level) – Age 4 or older
  • Level 2: Advanced Newbees – Age 4 or older
  • Level 3: Pedalheads – Age 4 or older
  • Level 4: Advanced Pedalheads – Age 6 or older
  • Level 5: Gearheads – Age 6 or older

Plus, if you have children under 4, check out some classes just for them! Riding Rookies give children aged 2 a chance to practice their skills with a parent in attendance. Kids aged 3 and 4 can check out Trikes ‘N’ Trainers or Balance Bikers.

Heroheads

Heroheads is a multi-sport camp with a superhero twist! Kids ages 4-8 will kick-start their passion for sports through a variety of skills, drills, obstacle courses, and games to build their “superpowers”!

Level 2 of Heroheads offer activities that are more complex and challenging. This level is more focused on making direct connections to sports, through games and drills. This multi-sport focus in Level 2 creates physically literate kids who are ready to enjoy a lifetime of activity.

Heroheads is an instructional camp and children will participate in drills and activities to learn seven basic physical skills, based on the Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD):

  • Locomotion (run, jump, skip and climb)
  • Agility
  • Throwing
  • Catching
  • Balance
  • Kicking
  • Hand-eye coordination

Much like Pedalheads 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 the daily events.
