About this Camp
The SCA teams up with Velo Kids to bring you two days of cycling and art! Join Velo Kids on an art-inspired bike tour for two mornings and visit local galleries and awesome art-friendly locations before heading to the Saugatuck-Douglas District Library for lunch. In the afternoon, make colorful and unconventional art projects with the SCA team inspired by your biking adventures!
In the morning with Velo Kids, you’ll explore local bike paths and discover places like Woosah, Douglas Beach, Wade’s Bayou, and Shultz Park. Learn how to bike safely and bike smart around town and develop bike repair and maintenance skills. Learn and practice stewardship for our trails, parks and our community while you meet new friends, get active, and have fun in the great outdoors!
In the afternoon, SCA leads playful art making inspired by your wheels and outside fun! Decorate your ride and make art with bike-like materials. Get creative with blending colors and work collaboratively to create nature based artwork inspired by your morning trips! Enjoy two days full of creativity and adventure. A healthy afternoon snack is provided by the SCA
