Where: Soka University, 1 University Dr., Aliso Viejo, CA 92656
When: Monday, August 3 through Friday, August 7, 2019
Volunteer Training: Sunday, August 2 from 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

The Orange County Bike Camp 2020 is a collaborative project between the Down Syndrome Association of Orange County (DSAOC) and UCP of Orange County (UCP-OC). iCan Shine is a non-profit organization that teaches individuals with disabilities to ride a conventional two-wheel bicycle through its’ iCan Bike program. Utilizing adaptive bike riding techniques, specialized adaptive bike equipment, and staff from iCan Shine, Inc., DSAOC and UCP-OC will host this exciting, week-long experience for 40 children and adults with disabilities.

Volunteers will build meaningful one-on-one relationships with their rider as they learn to ride a bike. Volunteers will be walking or jogging alongside the rider in the beautiful air-conditioned Soka University Gym (Aliso Viejo) until their rider is two-wheeling on a regular bike. Then, volunteers will accompany their rider outside to spot them as they ride in the parking lot for practice. Volunteers work in pairs with the same rider all week. You become part cheerleader, part spotter, and also their buddy! A memorable experience for all involved.

Volunteer Requirements:

-Volunteers must be 15 years or older by day 1 of camp.
-Volunteers must be able to walk, jog, or run for their session with breaks.
-Volunteers should make a week-long commitment to do one or more sessions. (Can’t do a whole week? You can apply to be an “extra!”)
-Volunteers must wear comfortable, active wear such as appropriate length shorts or leggings and tennis shoes.
-Volunteers will also be given a Bike Camp t-shirt to be worn at each shift.
-Although small snacks and water are provided, volunteers need to bring their own reusable water bottle to refill.
