At Pedalheads, our goal is to provide your child with the right level so he/she will feel safe, excited and challenged by all the skills and activities at camp.
Children are constantly growing, learning and developing so we expect that there may be some moving around to find the perfect match. Try to determine what level would be best suited for your child and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call us.
