grandridgeboardwalkTrail and Mountain Biking

The Greater Seattle area is home to some of the most amazing mountain bike trails/parks in the country and the goal of this camp is to introduce kids and families to the incredible resources at our disposal. Riders of all levels are welcome to join this camp as we’ll plan to split into groups based on ability and experience. Most of the trails will only be 1 – 2 miles at most so beginners are welcome, while more proficient riders will have an opportunity to ride ahead or take some longer trails. We’ll check out trails at places like Saint Edward, Paradise Valley, Soaring Eagle, and Duthie Hill. Weather permitting, we’ll also try to fit in an afternoon swim/paddle. Camp is for kids ages 7 and older. Kids must be proficient on a bike and able to swim.


lake union bikesBikes and Beaches

We’ll take things a little easier in our bikes, sports, and beaches camps by sticking to flat (by Seattle standards), paved surfaces like the Burke Gilman and similar trails and will head to some of Seattle’s best beach parks for some field sports or good ole fashioned playground time. Weather permitting, we’ll cool off in Lake Washington and may even have the van parked at some of our destinations loaded with paddleboards, kayaks, and other flotation devices. Past destinations have included Seattle favorites like Magnuson Park, Matthews Beach, Arboretum/Foster Island, Montlake Playfield, and others. Camp is for kids ages 6 and older. Kids must be able to swim and be proficient on a bike (comfortable climbing/pedaling uphill, descending downhill, and able to bike distances of 3 miles in a single trip and 6 – 10 miles over the course of a day).

 


mtbAdvanced Mountain Biking

This camp is intended for more seasoned riders with enough stamina to endure longer rides of 5 – 10 miles in length, more arduous climbs/descents, and sending it off gaps, drops, or jumps. We also have a small rental fleet of full suspension mountain bikes for kids ages 9 – 15 for anyone interested in renting more advanced equipment for the camps. Riders will have an opportunity to venture out to more exotic destinations like Galbraith in Bellingham, 360/Gateway in Gig Harbor, and other fun spots. As the weather gets hot, we typically find a good spot to jump in a lake afterward for swimming & paddling. Kids must be proficient and experienced on a mountain bike and able to endure long rides of 5 – 10 miles with extended uphill climbs and fairly rough descents. Most campers will be between the ages of 9 and 15, but younger ages are welcome based on ability.


LEGO CastleMorning LEGO Enrichment (9am – 12pm)

Kids will have an opportunity to exercise their minds in our morning LEGO enrichment sessions as we participate in custom-theme guided LEGO builds. Themes include areas like architecture/tall towers, Spaceships, Castles, Subnautica, Ninjago, Sculptures, Minecraft and more. Camp is intended for kids ages 5 and older and will include a break to a nearby park/playground for some outdoor recreation in-between builds.


beachAfternoon Bikes & Beaches (1pm – 4pm)

On weeks where we offer a Morning LEGO Enrichment Camp, we also offer an abbreviated version of our Bikes & Beaches camp where we bike to a nearby destination for some playground time, sports, and fun in the water. All other aspects of the camp are the same, we just don’t bike as far or to as many destinations. Campers who participate in Morning LEGO and stay the full day will stay at Wunderkind from 12 – 1pm for lunch and down time in between camps.


Afternoon Making & Baking (1pm – 4pm) baking

Calling all bakers! In this program we will practice our baking skills on various recipes from breads to muffins to sweet treats like cookies and cupcakes. We’ll of course taste test our baked goods and bring the extras home to share.

**We will bake with common ingredients including wheat, eggs, dairy.

**We will not use any kind of nuts in our baking.
