MVE Clubs & Activities

Methow Valley Elementary Cub Club

We have many great extra-curricular options for students at MVE this school year! Clubs and other enrichment activities for students change seasonally, so check back often for the most updated information. These after-school clubs are offered free of charge, thanks to funding assistance from the Public School Funding Alliance!

Most are run in partnership with our generous and talented community groups and volunteers including: Methow Arts, The Merc Theater, Classroom in Bloom, Methow Nordic, The Winthrop Ice and Sports Rink, MV Flyfishers, Methow Recycles and MV Riding Unlimited. Many thanks to our community partners who help support learning outside the classroom! Please let us know if you’re interested in helping or have another club idea you’d like to explore.

Methow Valley Fall Mountain Bike Camps

Mountain bike camps will be offered in the Methow Valley this fall by Coach Kat Power. These camps are for kids who are interested in learning and practicing skills on their bikes. We will spend time working on skills and going for trail rides. If your child is interested in the social aspect of biking, please check out the elementary school Cub Club option or the mountain bike class option offered by the junior and high school. If your child is interested in racing, please check out the Methow Cycling Team at https://washingtonleague.org/.
 
All of the camps will start the week of September 13th. There will be no camps the week of September 27. Riders must have their own mountain bikes. Camps will run through the week of November 8, weather dependent.

Registration opens September 1, 2021. Please go to www.methowcyclesport.com and search “Coaching” to select and register for a camp. Those who registered for a summer bike camp that was cancelled due to smoke can use their credit towards a fall camp. For this option, please contact the bike shop directly to sign up your child for a camp.
