Vancouver, B.C., April 12, 2016 – The coveted Pedalheads and Heroheads summer camps are now available in 50 locations across Canada, offering summer camp programs for 2 to 12 year old children. The programs target specific physical skills ranging from biking, throwing, catching, and balance. Children have fun, learn key life skills and gain confidence while mastering the Pedalheads program. Parents enjoy witnessing their kids’ special Pedalheads moments.
“Working with kids and helping them gain confidence while developing their skills is a great part of my day” says Ben Hall, Ontario Manager Pedalheads. “I also enjoy seeing the parent’s face at pick-up, when their child has mastered key skills eg. riding without training wheels. This is what we call ‘a Pedalheads moment’”.
All Pedalheads, one-week programs involve learning important techniques: skills are broken down into progressive, manageable chunks. children are placed in small, age-appropriate groups. Top-of-the-line equipment is used, and children are encouraged to play safe, stay hydrated, keep cool and have fun! A typical Pedalheads/Heroheads day begins with a warm-up, followed by an introduction to drills and finally a series of games focusing on basic skills.
Age: 3 year olds

Balance Bikers learn to be active and improve basic skills, increasing their comfort levels on balance bikes. Skills such as: bike handling, steering, stopping, and riding up and down hills, are learned while having fun and building confidence. In this fun, educational, and active class, kids improve their riding skills, balance and coordination by participating in a variety of biking games, obstacle courses, group rides, while riding on various terrains and slopes. They also learn bike safety basics and parts of the bike, as well enjoying other bike-related activities such as bike wash and biking stories, keeping the kids engaged and energized throughout each class. https://www.pedalheads.com/Pedalheads/pedalheads%C2%AE-levels

The aim of this one-week, half-day program is to help children build seven basic physical skills: locomotion (running, jumping, skipping and climbing), agility, throwing, catching, balance, kicking and hand-eye coordination. They then get to show off these skills at the end of the week with a NEW grand obstacle course called the “Heroheads Rescue Race” Superhero camp wouldn’t be complete without the ceremonial presentation of the cape to commemorate their newly achieved “superhero” status!

Traffic and densely populated urban areas make it difficult for parents to teach their kids to ride bikes. Kids need the confidence to ride safely on the road, in parks and around the neighbourhood. The Pedalheads® bike camp experience provides children with the right environment, trained instructors and small groups preparing them for the road—some as young as three can ride without training wheels upon completion of camp.
