Pedalheads is excited to announce that its popular bike camps are planning to run in the GTA this summer 2021! They successfully ran their programs last summer with no reported cases of COVID-19 and will continue to follow the appropriate health & safety protocols.
A positive attitude towards physical activity and sports starts at a young age. By giving your children fun opportunities and teaching them foundational skills, their confidence to try new things will increase. Along the way, they are making the connection that staying active is FUN, which helps them to make lasting habits. As parents, we all want our kids to be confident and capable, but we don’t always have the time or resources to teach them these new skills. So, why not let the experts step in to help?
Pedalheads is North America’s leader in teaching kids’ skill development, confidence, and independence in biking, swimming, and various sports. They have over 30 locations in the Greater Toronto Area, and are always growing because of their tried and true methods.
No family is exactly alike, and so your options shouldn’t be either. You can choose between bike camps or trail riding camps, depending on the age and skill level of your child. The bike camps have both full-day and half-day options, with before and after care available in some locations. Trail riding is only offered as half-day camps.
Pedalheads Bike | Ages 2+
Pedalheads Bike offers programs for a wide range of ages and skill levels. These bike programs give your kids an opportunity to increase strength, improve skills, and for the younger ones, get off their training wheels! All of the camp sizes are kept small, with a firm focus on both FUN and SAFETY. Finding the right level for your child is simple and easy to choose on their website. Summer Bike Camps run from Monday – Friday, starting as early as June in certain locations, all the way through August* (subject to change).
Take a look at the requirements for each level to find the camp that is right for your child. The bike camps are separated into 4 categories:
- Ages 2 (Riding Rookie) – 1 hour program
For tots brand new to biking, assisted by their caregiver.
- Ages 3 & 4 (Trikes “N” Trainers or Balance Bikers) – 1.5 hour program
Help your child develop the love and skill it takes to get going on two wheels!
- Ages 4+ (Newbees, Advanced Newbees, or Pedalheads Level 3 )
