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 while enjoying all that Chicago has to offer. All local ground transportation, lodging, meals, and program activities will be provided to military personnel at no cost.
All individuals who have or are currently serving in the US Armed Forces and now have a primary physical disability are welcome to apply. Last year, camp participants represented every military branch, came from 13 states, even from outside the continental USA.
Camp participants will stay at the Embassy Suites Downtown Lakefront Chicago during camp. A travel stipend of up to $400 may be available to help offset the cost of travel to Chicago.
