June 30th – July 3rd Wild Animal Bikers – Beginner to Advanced nature bike class. Students discover new nature adventures around each corner as they investigate different locations for habitat and signs of wildlife. As modern scientific explorers, we will sketch and journal all our findings along the way. This camp is open to bike learners on pedal free bikes. Students will be put into groups based on bike abiltiy.
Monday – Avery bike introduction and safety, local species introduction and honing our observational skills for use on the trail.
Tuesday – Wetland wildlife at Sunset Park.
- This path is perfectly poised for observing waterfowl, small mammals and amphibians not to mention the valuable lesson in discussing the dynamics of this restored wetland.
Wednesday – Campus Way Trail
- Starting at the barn and head to the bridge and investigate the river banks before heading to the fairgrounds. Capable bikers will roll through Bald Hill in the afternoon.
Thursday – Crystal Lake to Willamette River.
- Using keen observational skills to discover tracks, diverse animal ‘homes’ and other signs of the wildlife along the shores of the lake and banks of the river.
**Current two wheel bikers will be grouped based on their ability. This is the only camp we are accepting beginner bikers that are ready to learn two wheel biking. We can provide a peddle free balance bike or you can take training wheels and peddles off of your own bike. By the end of this camp your biker will be confident and capable on two wheels and ready to roll into any of our other bike programs**
All camps cover ages 5-12 unless age restrictions are stated. Campers are divided into age appropriate groups within camps. Note some camps meet at different locations on some days and all camps have field trips on Thursday. The field trips are great fun!
