Biking is more than just exercise and transportation:  it’s a social activity of connection, a childhood rite of passage and a first taste of independence. Transforming biking into an inclusive activity is the mission of iCanBike, a national organization that conducts bike camps for individuals with special needs. This unique approach has enabled thousands of people, with a variety of disabilities, to become independent bicycle riders.The Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio, in collaboration with Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Autism Society of Central Ohio, is hosting our 10th iCanBike Camp.

Each participant takes part in a 75 minute session between the hours of 8:15 am to 4:30 pm.

Requirements

Participants must be at least 8 years old, have a developmental disability, and should have a minimum inseam of 20″, be able to walk without an assistive device, weigh no more than 220 lbs and must wear a properly fitted helmet. A parent, guardian or other caregiver is expected to participate in various ways throughout the week. Scholarships are available through DSACO for individuals with a diagnosis of Down syndrome. Contact us for details.

There are a limited number of scholarships available through the Autism Society of Central Ohio. Contact centralohioasa@gmail.com to request a scholarship form for this event.  The individual must have a diagnosis of autism to request a scholarship.

Application

Because camp is limited to 40 participants, campers are selected based on timely completion of application AND likelihood to succeed in camp.  A 100% refund will be issued to any applicant who is not selected to participate in camp.
