  • Day camps will be held from 9am-3pm, Monday through Friday. Drop off and pick-up times 30 minutes before/after camp.
  • Day campers will need to bring a lunch, snack and water each day.
  • In all camps, campers will spend some time each day at the "base camp", working on skills, maps/route planning, etc.
  • Campers will spend much of the day on their bikes riding through neighborhoods to fun destinations and trails.

Q: I want my child to attend camp but we are leaving on vacation, can I get a price break?

A: At this time we don't have a rate for a partial week. 

Q: Do I have to bring my child's bike to camp every day?

A: No, we have pre-arranged to store the bicycles, helmets, locks each night in the classroom. The classrooms are secured. 

Q: I don't get off work until after 3pm. What happens to my child?

A: All children need to be picked up between 3:00 and 3:30pm. Sometimes special arrangements can be made with the instructors but if you are going to be late, you'll need to arrange someone to pick up your child.


We have a form you'll be asked to fill out stating who is authorized to pick up your child. If you send someone to pick up your child and they are not on the list, your child will NOT be released. You need to notify the instructors of any changes and make notes on the forms. 

Q: Can parents ride with their children?

A: Parents and grandparents, you are invited to join us for a Family Ride on the last day of Summer Bike Camp.


We want you to see your child in action, showing off the skills he/she has learned during the week. The details of the ride are still in the planning stages but on Friday at noon or 1pm we will meet at the camp base with bikes, helmets, and water bottles. The kids will plan out the route – so be prepared for an adventure! Along the way, they may want to stop and explain why it is they do a certain something (ex. riding single file vs 4 or 5 abreast). Feel free to ask questions. Please allow 1 hour for the ride. When we return to the camp base, we will have a short graduation ceremony. 

Q: What do the kids do at camp?

A: A typical day begins at 9am when parents drop off the campers. Once checked in, kids and instructors meet in the classroom to plan out the day. 


On Monday the instructors evaluate the kids riding skills, work on safe riding drills, and go for a ride to a park for lunch.

The rest of the week, the campers will go over drills, plan out what and where they are going and head out on an adventure. 


The campers will spend the better part of each day riding and exploring. During the week, they'll get introduced to mass transit and how to board with their bike. Towards the end of the day, they'll head back to the classroom to meet parents for pickup. 


On Friday, which includes a wrap-up after lunch, there will be a short test to find out what they learned during the week (this is for our purposes only). The kids all receive a goody bag and letter of completion. 

Q: Are there Bike Camp Scholarships?

The amount of scholarships we offer varies from year to year and depends upon sponsor generosity.


To be considered for a scholarship you need to be referred by an agency or contact info@washcobikes.org


Qualifications for a scholarship include, but are not limited to:

  • Your child receives a free lunch at school.
  • You have an Oregon Trail card (you may be asked to show it).

Q: My Child doesn't feel well-should they attend camp?

A: This is a decision for you as a parent needs to make. Please understand the kids are doing a lot of riding each day. The first three days are spent working on skills and incorporating them into riding. Missing camp during these days makes it hard to keep up on the final two days they are riding. much of the day.
