What is iCan Bike Camp?

A program that teaches individuals with disabilities how to ride a conventional bike and become a lifelong independent rider! 

Success in learning to ride a bicycle is a major accomplishment for attendees and builds confidence and an improved self-image. Nothing is more inspiring than seeing a group of bike camp participants ride a conventional bike completely independently.  By the end of the five day camp over 80 percent of riders learn to ride their bikes completely independently.

Volunteer spotters will walk/jog approximately three miles during each 75 minute session so please keep this in mind if volunteering for multiple sessions. Unless your are very athletic, please do not volunteer for more than two (2) sessions per day.

We ask volunteers to commit to attending all five days of camp for the session(s) selected. Riders bond with their assigned volunteers and rely on the same person to be there to support them each day of camp.

This experience is as rewarding for the volunteers as it is for all of our riders and their families and we cannot do it without many helpers. The program counts as service hours for schools and business organizations. 

Want to volunteer? We need your help to make this event a success.
