Bi-lingual Youth Bike Adventures on the Near West Side

Merrick House has partnered with Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital's Inury Prevention Center and Safe Kids Greater Cleveland to offer a unique summer camp experience for youth ages 10-13 of the Near West Side of Cleveland.

The CVC summer bike camp is not just about traveling by bike, it's a way to explore the many educational, recreational and future career opportunities on the Near West Side and beyond in a supportive atmosphere of friends, neighbors and community. Each day of camp will have a theme around which activities, experiences and travel routes will be organized. For example, on Food & Nutrition Day stops will include the West Side Market, community gardens and local restaurants. Other stops will include a recording studio, sports venues, artists' studios, Steelyard Commons, the Towpath Trail, Edgewater Beach and more! Campers will also participate in a service learning project and have numerous fun group activities at Merrick House, Lincoln Park and Clark Fields. For one day of the camp, participants will use rapid transit to visit University Hospitals of Cleveland to learn about the many careers available in healthcare, science and medicine. Any Tremont business owners, artists or organizations that would like to get involved and be part of the weekly tour of the neighborhood and share what you do should contact Thomas Cook of Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital at 216-983-1105.
