CHURCHVILLE, Md. (WMAR) — It's back, registration is now open for Harford County’s fourth annual “iCan Bike” summer camp. And they're also looking for volunteers to help out.

The camp teaches children with varying disabilities how to ride a bike.

This year, camp will be held from June 22 through June 26 at the Churchville Recreation Center, at 3023 Level Road.

The way it works is, campers have to choose a 75-minute time period between 8:30 a.m and 2:15 p.m., and show up at that same time for each of the five days.

Campers must be at least 8-years-old, be able to walk without an assisting device, be able to step side-to-side, be willing and able to wear a bike helmet, and have a guardian who can spend the entire 75-minutes at the camp each day.

All riders will receive a T-shirt and a medal of completion at the closing ceremony on the last day of camp.

The cost for camp is $50, but make sure you register as space is limited.

Volunteers are also needed to help each camper ride on a specially adapted bike. The good news is no experience is needed. Two volunteers will be assigned to the same camper all five days.
