The Bob O’Connor Foundation partnered with The Children’s Institute to bring Bike Camp to Pittsburgh!
The Children’s Institute and iCan Shine™ teamed up to bring bike camp to Pittsburgh! The Amazing Bike Camp is a week-long camp dedicated to teaching children with special needs how to ride a two-wheeled bicycle.
Throughout the week, children used adaptive bicycles to gain confidence and independence in pedaling and balance. As each camper’s confidence and skill level increased, modifications are made to the bikes until finally they’re riding on two wheels. The campers are coached by two staff members from the iCan Shine™ organization, as well as many amazing volunteers!
Bike Camp was held June 23 – 27, 2014 at Monroeville Sports Center. A total of 40 children participated in The Amazing Bike; all of which were successful increasing their bike riding independence!
