RIC Military Sports Camp

RIC Military Sports Camp is designed for injured military personnel with a primary physical disability. Introductory-level athletes are invited to learn from elite-level coaches and enjoy all Chicago has to offer.

Local ground transportation, lodging, meals, and program activities are provided to military personnel at no cost. A small travel stipend may be available to help offset the cost of travel to Chicago.

Ongoing Military Sports Programming

In addition to our other sports programs, we offer the following popular programs for our participants with a military background in mind. Please note that to participate in the ongoing sports programs offered, the Sports Program requires that a completed medical form and waiver be on file.

For more information on any of these programs, email Aimee Gottlieb or call (312) 238-5010.
