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 three 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!
