The 7th Annual iCan Bike Camp will be held July 7-11, 2014 at the Rochester Institute of Technology. This camp will teach individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other disabilities, how to ride a conventional bike without training wheels. Lose the Training Wheels provide specialized bicycle riding equipment, as well as, a team of experts. Each participant attends one 75-minute session per day for five consecutive days. There will be 1-2 volunteers assisting the trainers with each child. We are able to change the lives of these children and teens by teaching them a skill that builds self-confidence, provides inclusion with their peers, and gives them a lifetime of fun and exercise!
In order to participate, the person must meet the following requirements:
Session I: 8:15-9:30am
Session II: 9:50-11:05am
Session III: 11:25am-12:40pm
Session IV: 1:40-2:55pm
Session V: 3:15-4:30pm
