In between biking + skateboarding, kids will collaborate on projects with use of open-ended materials. Finally, there is a literacy component to the camp which includes: daily read alouds, independent reading, and more! What’s needed: helmet, water bottle, lunch + snacks, skateboard (optional). Bikes are supplied! (Helmets, protective padding and skateboards (and BOOKS!) can be purchased at the Bikes, Boards + Books Pro Shop!)
