volunteers needed, Summer Cycling Day Camp

Posted by Neighborhood Bike Works on June 1, 2015

Neighborhood Bike Works is currently seeking volunteers for our Summer Cycling Day Camp, which offers youth ages 8-14 the opportunity to recondition and earn a bike, helmet, and lock in a two-week session. Youth complete our Earn-A-Bike curriculum, participate in fun outdoor activities, go on educational field trips, and learn about safe cycling, nutrition, and healthy lifestyles.

Our camp runs in two-week sessions between June 29 and August 21 from 8:30am to 4:00pm as follows:

Session 1: 6/29-7/10
Session 2: 7/13-7/24
Session 3: 7/27-8/7
Session 4: 8/10-821

Each day’s schedule is typically divided into shop time and road time. Shop time is oriented toward bike repair instruction and practice. Volunteers will be working alongside the youth, helping to reinforce the lesson and keeping them engaged and excited about their projects. Road time includes group bicycle rides led by the summer camp director. During the rides, volunteers join the NBW line as chaperons, modeling safe urban riding and keeping the youth in line. Other summer camp activities include art and nutrition activities like screen printing and healthy snack lessons.

No experience is necessary- just a willingness to learn and potentially get their hands dirty!

Volunteers can sign up for shop time OR road time (or both), depending on their interests, skills, and availability.

To apply or for more information, please email Nadav Carmel, Outreach Coordinator, at nadav@neighborhoodbikeworks.org.
