We’ve just wrapped up another summer season of BMX Pro For a Week Camp. We ran 9 weeks straight with our biggest numbers in 6 years! We had the opportunity to work with more than 400 local shredders this summer and we’re excited to welcome them back.
Many thanks to Kasandra and Tyler Brown at Chula Vista BMX for working so well with us all summer long. These two run a top-notch track facility. We’d also like to thank Rylinde Cole, Brooke Craft, McKenna and Derin Mertin, and Sasha Bright for their efforts in working with the kids all summer. Special thanks to all of our camp sponsors: Haro, 100%, Barona Casino, WD40, 3dyn Composites Inc, ODI, Tioga and Dvide.
We’re at the midway point in our YMCA BMX Pro For A Week Summer Camp Season 2019 down at Chula Vista BMX in San Diego. We’ve already exceeded our expected number of campers and are happy to share we have an overall 82%+ retention rate on campers. It’s great to see so many familiar faces coming back to hone their skills while also welcoming so many newcomers too. We’ve seen an increase in the number of girls signing up, which is great for the sport. It really boils down to getting more kids on bikes and we’re on a mission to do just that.
It’s more than just a bike; it’s building a healthy lifestyle, helping youngsters to be aware of their surroundings, promoting great brain development, helping to alleviate anxiety, increasing academic achievement, preventing obesity and disease, creating happier kids all while having fun. Let’s Ride!
Our BMX Pro For A Week YMCA Summer Camp Season kicks off June 17th all summer long through August 16th at Chula Vista BMX. Email email@example.com for more info or hit our BMX Pro For A Week link for YMCA sign-up information.
Our BMX Pro For A Week Summer Camp has had such an incredible response that we’ve decided to run one week of Holiday Camp from Monday, December 31, 2018, to Friday, January 4, 2019. You may sign up through the Mission Valley YMCA at (619) 298-3576 for a full-week, or for a one day adventure through the Scripps Ranch Swim and Racquet Club at (858) 549-5355.
You may also sign up directly with us at DaleHolmes99@gmail.com but you will need your own transportation to and pick from the track, 10:00am and 2:00pm daily.
Fees are $50 per day or $190 for the week.
**There is no camp on Tuesday, January 1, 2019.**
Fees include bike rental, helmets and gloves, track fees, and MANY giveaways. Please let us know if you have any questions and we sure hope to welcome your young BMXer back for Holiday Camp! Please contact us at DaleHolmes99@gmail.com.
This would make a wonderful Holiday present for your youngster too! Limited to the first 50 sign-ups. Camp will be held at Kearny Moto Park.
During our BMX Pro For A Week Summer Camp season, two of our good friends from the UK, Bill Barrowcliff and his son, James (from Trophy Specials), donate an annual award to one of our campers. The award is coined the Stephen Murray BMX Courage Award. Bill was one of the UK’s official starters in the 90s and James regularly battled with Stephen in their age group for many years. Through social media Bill and James have been able to connect with racing again and follow Stephen’s journey since his injury. Big thanks to Bill and James. We also got to plug in Dvide tees and hats for the last few weeks of camps and dial the kids in with some free swag and get this new project rolling.
We had a great BMX Pro for a Week YMCA Camp run this summer with 10 weeks straight. We’re grateful for the YMCA of San Diego’s faith in us to deliver high-quality programming. We’ve enjoyed tremendous growth and not only expanded in the number of Y’s in the county we work with but also in the number of campers each week. We thank both our regulars and our newcomers for their support. We have an 86% retention rate on campers and we love it when they bring siblings, cousins and friends. It is through many strategic partnerships that we continue to grow and serve more kids in our local communities. Thanks to all for taking part and we look forward to growing together.
