Learn to Bike! Camp Highlands Ranch - Pre-K to 1st - Day Camp

Aspiring cyclists age three and a half to six experience the fun of biking on two wheels in our half-day Learn to Bike! day camp. Nurtured by skilled instructors in a supportive on-site environment, our pint-sized pedalers enjoy 5:1 camper-to-staff ratios for lots of individual attention and patient, personalized coaching.

We meet kids wherever they are at in their skill level, working through a careful progression from scooting to coasting to pedaling as they get comfortable cycling on their own. Taught by our experienced instructors, this time tested method provides campers with the perfect opportunity for skill and confidence building. 

Learn to Bike! is built for first-time riders or kids using training wheels or balance bikes, not those who can already ride. While we encourage campers to use their own bikes, they can also borrow from our fleet.

Our carefully crafted program leads kids through a progression of skills—walking their bikes, scooting downhill, coasting with their feet up, touching the pedals and finally pedaling—building the know-how they need to bike confidently on their own.

I love working with kids who are excited to explore and learn about the outdoors. Kids keep me feeling young and excited to go to work every day. They are constant sources of energy, fun, and inspiration. I feel incredibly grateful for my family and role models growing up because they helped me learn to appreciate being outdoors and having adventures and I want to support kids making that discovery for themselves. I have avalanche safety training (AIARE Level 1, AIARE Rescue), Avid Lead Climbing Certification and Wilderness First Responder Certification. I grew up going to a sleep-away camp in Maine called Camp Agawam and we still enjoy a strong relationship with many of our friends from our time there. I love feeling connected to landscapes and wildlife. Climbing, biking, hiking all give me opportunities to connect with myself and the landscape in new ways. My favorite place to be outside of the camp season is exploring the mountains on my splitboard with my dog and my girlfriend/adventure partner, Emma.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blues Clues? It was the most successful kids’ show of all time. Do you remember that book that your child insisted on reading over and over again? How could you forget it? Why was Blues Clues so successful and why did your child NEED to re-read that book? Because repetition promotes learning, growth, and empowerment.

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple weeks of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others.


While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
