volunteers wanted for Lose the Training Wheels Camp

← Back to Forums


The Children’s Institute is looking for volunteers for their Lose the Training Wheels Camp in June.

I can’t find the flyer online, but here is a copy of what is in the pdf I was forwarded. I’ll pass on the original if you PM me.

I’m not affiliated with it in any way and don’t have any more details than this, but there is contact info below.



Get fit while giving back. Spend an hour and 15 minutes for 5 days helping a child to ride. You don’t need to be a teacher, just want to help kids ride a bike without training wheels. A national program , Lose the Training Wheels, and The Children’s Institute need your help. A volunteer works with a child with special needs helping him/her to maintain balance and

running along side or behind the child while they are learning to ride a two wheeled bike. This is a physically demanding activity. There is a director who will tell you what to do to assist the child in riding.

Looking for teens*/adults 16 yrs. or older who are able to:

• Be physically active for 1 hr and 15 minutes (running beside a

bike, assisting child with balancing on the bike while riding)

• Hold onto a bicycle

• Be positive ? HAVE FUN!

* Teens under 18 yrs. of age will need a parent’s signature to participate.

Volunteers will receive training prior to participating in camp sessions.
