It's back for the 11th year! iCan Bike Camp will take place July 8-12, 2019 at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The week-long camp teaches individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other disabilities, to ride a conventional bike without training wheels. Specialized, adaptive cycling equipment is utilized by certified instructors and an army of volunteer spotters that build confidence, skill and ultimately, success.

With a nearly 100% success rate, the program changes the lives of children and teens by teaching them a skill that builds self-confidence, provides an inclusive recreation opportunity with peers, and encourages a lifetime of fun and exercise. Participants will need to bring their own bicycle to camp for adjustments and will ride off into the sunset on the last day!


VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

We rely on at least 80 volunteers to make this program a success! This is an excellent community service project for schools, organizations and sports teams! If you would like to become a volunteer, please email cjones@autismup.org.

About the iCan Bike Camp: iCan Shine provides specialized bicycle riding equipment and a team of trained experts. Each participant attends one 75 minute session each day for five consecutive days. At least 1-2 volunteers are assigned to each participant to assist the trainer and rider.
