Skill levels & progression
Beginner: Ages 2 and up
Their beginner levels are great for kids who are just starting to ride. The MOST POPULAR camp is Level 1 Newbees where kids move from training wheels to two wheels. Many campers take off their training wheels within a week (our own included)!
Advanced: Ages 4 and up
Once kids are comfortable riding around on two wheels, they can keep developing their bike handling skills and learn how to ride on the road safely.
