Testimonials
“It’s day 3 at Bike Camp and my kid has gone from being totally nervous because she doesn’t want to come after a bad experience on a bike, to smiling, happy, skipping and dancing. She’s flourishing in this environment. She rode her bike for the first time today with zero training wheels and we are ecstatic because it’s only day 3.”

“I just want to thank everyone who helped support this program because you changed my sons life. He’s going to go into 4th grade this year with so much confidence because he knows how to ride a bike and he said “Mom, this is amazing”. So, thank you.”

Testimonials
"The Bike Camp that was provided by Kinetic Kids was absolutely fabulous! It was very well organized and professional. I knew my child was in the hands of caring, experienced individuals who knew what they were doing. They also made it fun and made it work for each individual. The volunteers were very sweet too. Sharp and I enjoyed each day and were able to take what we learned there and build on it at home to safely perfect his riding skills. Thank you Kinetic Kids!"

"I never thought my daughter could learn to ride a bike, let alone in only a week! The pride and self-confidence it gave her was priceless!"

Testimonials
“As a parent of a child with a disability, there are so many things starting when they are born that you are told your child will not be able to do. It sometimes seems learning to accept all of the “won’t do this and won’t do that’s” – like it’s a series of the doors that will not be available or open for my child. With bike riding, once upon a time, we thought this was the case as well. We thought my son’s bike would never be used but just sit in the garage collecting dust. But now, with this program, we have something we can say MY CHILD CAN do this, my child has learned this skill! We now have one more thing to add to the CAN column and not the CANNOTs! So thank you everyone who makes this come true for my son and our family! Thank you to everyone for giving my child a chance to do something that up to this point has been too challenging for her. Her younger brother was learning and she was truly feeling discouraged. Bike riding will not only help her have a new means of exercise, but it will also open up opportunities to our family to do more things together as a unit. Thank you!”

Bike Camp

Kinetic Kids hosts an annual Bike Camp to assist children with special needs in learning to ride a traditional bicycle. Kinetic Kids teams with “Lose The Training Wheels” to provide specialized equipment, therapists and techniques necessary to teach participants balance, coordination, and mobility needed to ride a bicycle unassisted, without the use of training wheels. Based on past success with this program, 85% of children who enter Bike Camp will be independent bike riders by the end of the 5th day of camp. These children, who are 8 years and older and have special needs, have not been able to learn bike riding by use of traditional methods. We strongly believe in the ability of Bike Camp to increase self-confidence in our participants, improve quality of life through physical activity, and inclusion with able-bodied peers.
