The 2017 iCanShine/Lose the Training Wheels Camp will be held June 5-9th at the Phil Cline Family YMCA in Huntington, WV.
The 7th annual Lose the Training Wheels Camp hosted by the Marshall University College of Health Professions will be held at the Phil Cline Family YMCA, June 5-9th, 2017. The Lose the Training Wheels Camp is offered in cooperation with iCan Shine which is a non-profit charity that travels the country teaching physical activity skills to children with special needs (such as autism or Down syndrome). The Lose the Training Wheels Camp teaches children how to independently ride a two-wheel bike. Through the use of their adapted bicycles and specialized training, the Lose the Training Wheels has an average success rate of over 80% by the end of the week.
The camp consists of five sessions of four campers per day for a total of twenty campers. Each camper attends one session per day. Each session is seventy-five minutes. The camp registration fee is $100.00. A brochure detailing the camp can be found here. If you or someone you know would be interested in registering please download a registration form. The camp has a capacity of twenty five campers. A spot in the camp can be secured with a paid registration form. Each spot will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. No child will be turned away due to financial barriers – scholarships are available.
