The Problem

We want to fix and tune up broken bikes for kids who come to Camp Courage where we have our school. We are reusing old bikes to keep them from ending up in a landfill. We will look into if we can recycle broken chains and other parts that cannot be reused. Camp also gets fixed up bikes from a nonprofit, but this way they can keep more bikes.

Our Plan

We created a list of parts we need for the camp. Once those parts come in, we will fix 8-10 broken bikes, including 3 and 4-wheeled bikes. We will do the repairs in the porch of our cabin classroom with tools from camp. The activities director will order the parts, and this could lead to more and bigger projects for the camp.
