Upcoming Seasonal Youth Camps
Strawberry Canyon Mini Camp – Winter Break 2023
Strawberry Canyon Mini Camp is a comprehensive recreational day camp for youth ages 5 – 10. Strawberry Canyon Mini Camp is structured around the idea that all children need opportunities to play and engage in regular group activity during scheduled school breaks. This camp combines group games and sports activities, experimental science, and crafts to provide a well-rounded, and diverse recreational camp experience. In addition to a wide array of structured activities, campers are provided with ample opportunities to build positive relationships with friends through free play and group games that emphasize positive play and pro-social behaviors.
Note: Youth must bring a sack lunch daily, and snacks are encouraged. Strawberry Canyon Mini Camp does not provide lunch or snacks for enrolled campers.

Learn to Bike – Winter Break 2023
Learn to Bike is a two hour program for youth ages 5-12.
Our staff will guide your future cyclist through our tried and true instructional method, all the while sharing coaching skills with the accompanying adults. While most of our students will be able to take their first pedal strokes by the end of our two hour course, we also recognize that some students need more than two-hours to learn a new skill. Therefore it is mandatory that the accompanying adults stay and watch, not only so you can cheer your child on, but so you can learn our curriculum to continue our lessons when you get home. We will cover foundational skills like balance, turning, braking, starting, and stopping.
Note: It is required to bring a personal bike, without training wheels and set to the appropriate height with your child’s feet flat on the ground while seated.
