Paralympic Military Sports Camps are multi-day events for veterans and military personnel with physical injuries that aim to introduce individuals to a variety of summer and winter sport opportunities.  During each camp, participants attend sports clinics conducted by Paralympic athletes and coaches.  All service members attend the camp at no cost.  Expenses related to travel, lodging and meals are covered by the USOC.

The 2010 Paralympic Military Sports Camp schedule is posted below.  As noted, some of these camps are by invitation only and some are competition events.  Registration forms for all other camps will be posted here as they become available. Additional camps and events may also be added throughout the year.
