  • Riders must attend the same time slot each day. 
  • When registering your child for the camp, please choose multiple time slots that you will be available for. 
  • Riders are slotted into each session based on availability and on the age and size of the rider.
  • Riders must be evenly distributed among the sessions because of the availability of equipment (for example, we can’t have 6 riders in one session who are all of similar sizes because the equipment being used is of different sizes). 
  • Please be flexible if at all possible.

Become an iCan Bike Volunteer

iCan Bike Volunteer and Rider

Thanks to all who have volunteered for our 2022 program. As of 7/7/22, we are in good shape for sessions 1, 2, & 3. Our greatest needs right now are for session #5, and we could still use a few more volunteers for session #4. If you are available for either session #4, or #5, please click on the registration link below.

The Miracle League of CT also runs the iCan Bike summer camp in West Hartford each summer.  iCan Bike is a program that helps children with special needs become independent riders on a two wheel bicycle.  iCan Bike volunteers must be at least 15 years old and be able to run alongside a bicycle rider for extended periods of time.  Our volunteers serve as spotters for each rider as they are learning to ride.  We ask that our volunteers are available for the full week of camp because we like our riders to get to know their helpers well.  Trust is a very important part of this process and that can only be achieved through continuity.  The camp runs each day Monday-Friday each year normally in the last week of July.  There are five 75 minute sessions each day.  You may volunteer for one session per day or as many as you like.  Volunteers are provided with a shirt for the week that identifies them to the riders and we provide lunch from some of West Hartford’s most generous local restaurants each day.  Come join us at the iCan Bike camp, you will feel the same sense of accomplishment that our riders do.  It is truly an amazing experience.

VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION 

There will be a parent orientation / volunteer training meeting on Sunday July 24th.  We will send details about the meeting prior to that date.  This is a mandatory meeting for at least one parent per rider. Online Registration will be available on March 15th. Cost for the program is $200 per rider.  If you choose to pay by check during the online registration process, please mail the check along with a copy of your registration to:
