Newt Mountain Bike Camp Lesson Plan

Lesson plans are subject to change.

Note to parents:  This is a parent cooperative camp. You are lucky enough to join us for two out of five days of fun! (We will do a registration of those days when we get close to our camp session) You are also “in charge” of leading a parent-led activity during one time slot. This is your chance to share something fun that YOUR family likes to do together. It could be a sing-along, physical game, story, art activity… if you are “stumped” let us know – we’ve got TONS of ideas!

Lesson plans are subject to change.
