Description

What is a Wrench and Ride camp?!


Wrench: In this weeklong camp, we will spend time in the Shop learning the basics of bicycle maintenance. Change a flat, clean your chain and get comfortable with keeping your bicycle in good working order. All campers will work on their own bicycles. Older campers will also work on a classroom set of bicycles, for extra practice. We might even jump into more complicated tasks like bearing systems, drivetrains and brakes, by working on some adult bikes.

Ride: We’ll spend part of the morning riding in the neighborhood. Later in the week, we will venture farther afield. We will work on how to plan a good riding route and the basics of road riding rules and skills.

Every camper should plan to bring a bicycle that is in good, working order, for the riding portion of the day. If you don’t currently have one, come by the Shop to buy one, before camp starts!


Afternoon Art Camp!

This year, we have an additional offering, for those campers who would like to stay the whole day. Kelly Lindsey and Jordan Walker, Snowden School Art teachers, will offer an afternoon of art. Campers will creat art with various art mediums throughout the week including painting on canvas, clay, sculpture, drawing and collage.

Please make sure to dress your child appropriately. Art Camp will get messy and some paint will not come out of clothing! You can read more about Art Camp, here.


Please note:

Once you sign up, camper information and release forms will be sent to you. These will need to be returned to confirm your spot in our camp.

If your camper plans to stay all day, please send a lunch!
