Summer Camps

We offer physically challenging camps that allow youth to be active and explore their world by bicycle, and hone values for environmental stewardship, community engagement, leadership, and healthy living.

*2021 SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!!!*

ALL SUMMER CAMPS START AND END AT BIKE WORKS! NO VEHICLE TRAVEL. BICYCLES AND SUPPLIES ARE PROVIDED BY BIKE WORKS. 


** PAYMENT INFO**

Bike Works strives to make programming accessible to all youth.

*At Bike Works, all of our programming is on a sliding scale cost. Through this payment structure, we are able to provide programming for anyone who is interested in bike riding and repair, no matter what they can afford to pay. We believe that it is more important than ever to be creating access and opportunities for communities disproportionately affected by institutional racism, classism, and sexism. We ask that individuals and families who are able to pay the full cost of our classes help by paying it forward for community members who cannot afford to pay full price, or at all.

NOTE: The Governor’s phased approach to re-opening Washington looks like it will allow camps and small group activities to happen by July when our programming begins. Bike Works always centers the health and safety of all our participants. We will follow all public health guidelines and best practices as they are issued. Class fees are fully refundable due to public health constraints, or other unforeseen issues.
