I Can Ride Bike Camp

Lydia Cox I Can Ride Bike Camp

The Lydia Faith Cox Family Foundation values people by recognizing individual uniqueness and celebrating diversity. We focus on abilities rather than disabilities, as we work for the highest level of success for each camp participant. There are many factors that contribute to success: attendance, numbers served, percentage of children who can ride a 2 -wheel bike independently at the conclusion of camp and parent/guardian program feedback. On average, 80% of our camp participants can ride a typical two-wheel bike independently by the end of our 5-day program.
