Frequently Asked Questions

Let's see if we can figure it out!

Q: Why do you have a zero refund policy?

A: Our classes regularly fill all the way up. This is important to us for two reasons:

  1. No one can take your child’s place if they do not make it to class, so we cannot make money. If you have a reservation, it is yours.

  2. Other students do not get the effects of a full class. We want our communities to be full of life, and a small group is a real bummer.

In most situations, if you do not get the item you payed for, the seller has not lost it. In our situation, you pay for the reservation for your child, and you get it regardless of whether or not you use it.

Q: What do you do if it is raining or will rain during a camp day?

A: We do not stop for a little rain! You will be contacted for an alternative drop off location if weather is bad. If we are on a bike field trip when weather rolls in, we will seek shelter at the safest, nearest public building until the weather subsides. This includes weather such as; rain, extreme heat, smoke, lightening, etc. Be sure you pack all the proper gear for your camper!

Q: Can my child bring and use their own sunscreen?
Q: How do I pick my kid up early?

A: You will be given your child's teachers phone number to coordinate early pick up, if we are out on our bike field trip. We ask that if you need to pick up early, to let the teacher know in the morning.

A: Yes! We supply all of our Campers with generic sunscreen to re-apply during the day. But, if you prefer your child to use the sunscreen you supply, that is not a problem! We will still supervise the application.

Q: How much food should I pack?

A: Lots! :) Be sure the food you pack is rich in protein, good fibers and natural sugars. The Campers use a TON of energy riding bikes around town in the Summer sun. Good, healthy lunches are a must!

Q: When & How do I pay?

A: Payment is due at the time of enrollment, which happens here. Payment plans can be scheduled upon request. Contact Mrs. Vivienne @ niftynannydgo@gmail.com

Q: How far do the Campers bike?

A: Each age group will bike as far as their weakest rider. Our Lead Teachers spend a lot of time observing Campers on our bike field trips to ensure we only bike the safest distances for all Campers. Age groups will bike distances according to ability. Some trips will only be .5 miles, while others may be 5 miles.
