Travelin’Tween Bike Camp is an educational travel program promoting personal growth,adventure, and fun through biking. The wind in your face, the sun on your back,the sense of accomplishment at the end of a long day--these are all part of thespecial feeling you have when riding.
We give our trip leaders lists of activities and interesting sites along theroute, but the group has the freedom to follow their preferences. Which attimes allows participants to split into groups and select a meeting spot andspecific time to gather back at after they explore. At the beginning of eachbike camp session staff explain to the kids where they are going, and discuss whatthey are doing. We also provide parents with a trip itinerary via e-mail beforethe daily trip and have it posted on our website, I know at times activitiesare subject to change due to weather, and group interest. In addition, leaderstouch base with the Park & Rec office before leaving, once they arrive/before they depart from the field trip, and at the end of the day, so parentscan contact us for information as the trip progresses. If it’s only raininglightly, the trip will carry on as planned. Heavy rains or thunderstorms areusually short-lived, so the group will sit out the storm in some other shelteredlocation, and continue on their way once it passes.

A participant will receive written notice for inappropriate behavior, and in the case of a minor, a copy of the notice from the counselor will be provided to such minor’s parent/guardian.
If a participant receives three notices of inappropriate behavior, or if the participant is involved in one severe incident, as determined by the Tween Bike staff, the participant may no longer participate in the program until a meeting is scheduled and held. The participant, a parent/guardian if the participant is a minor, the program instructor, the program supervisor and any other persons whom Park & Rec considers necessary for a resolution of the inappropriate behavior, shall be present at such meeting.
At the meeting, the question of continued participation in the program will be considered and, primarily for minor participants, a Behavior Contract may be prepared as a condition of continued participation. Such a Behavior Contract will be personalized to the circumstances and the participant, and will include specific expectations and consequences for failure to meet such expectations, including possible suspension and/or termination from program participation.
The behavior policy will be enacted from the first day of the school year and run until the last day. Warnings will accumulate throughout the year. They will not be carried over from one school year to the next.
