We encourage volunteers to commit to attending all 5 days of camp for the session(s) selected. Riders bond with their assigned volunteer(s) and rely on the same person to be there to support them each day of camp. We do understand this is not always a possibility and will welcome volunteers any days they can attend.The session times are as follows:
- Session 1: 8:05am-9:20am
- Session 2: 9:40am-10:55am
- Session 3: 11:15am-12:30pm
- Session 4: 1:30pm-2:45pm
- Session 5: 3:05pm-4:20pm
NOTE: Please plan to arrive each day of camp 20 minutes prior to your session start time for a daily trategy/briefing session. Please plan to attend our 45-minute orientation on Sunday June 4th at 4pm at Huntington YMCA, Phil Cline Center, 917 9th St., Huntington, WV 25701. During this orientation, you will learn about how the iCan Bike program operates, what to expect each day in your role as a volunteer spotter and you will receive training tips on spotting your assigned rider. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and meet other volunteers in your session.
