Training for Life Camps are just that ... TRAINING FOR LIFE through sport, health, wellness and leadership. 

These mini weekend camps offer individuals with intellectual disabilities and Unified Partners the chance to come together on the playing field to learn new sports skills, receive health & wellness programs and learn life skills in their very own home, the Training for Life Campus.

TOP 10 REASONS TO ATTEND CAMP:

  1. Free T-shirt!
  2. Make new friends
  3. Free Health Screenings
  4. Learn new leadership skills
  5. Get Health & Wellness tips
  6. Learn a new sport (or 2 or 3!)
  7. A weekend out of town with your friends.
  8. Work out in the fitness center
  9. Share your gifts and skills with others
  10. Experience the Camp Magic in the Training for Life Campus!

After reviewing comments and concerns about the Area TLC Camp structure, SOMO has decided to offer six TLC Weekend Camps for anyone to attend, regardless of geographic location. This allows athletes to choose the best date for their schedule, as well as based on the sports offered of the particular camp. TLC Weekend Camps will be a fantastic opportunity for athletes to make new friends from other areas. 

Additionally, teams/athletes were having challenges with booking their own hotel rooms, so we have decided to take this in-house. Instead of paying for their hotel room directly, participants will now pay a $55 lodging fee. Participants can pay this fee themselves, or they can fundraise to cover the cost. Participants who are not staying overnight (those local to mid-Missouri) do not have to pay this registration fee. Regardless of overnight stay, TLC Weekend Camps include lunch and dinner on Saturday plus a T-shirt. Athletes may use this fundraising letter template to ask for donations to cover their lodging fee

We hope this new structure will allow the TLC Weekend Camp experience to be hassle-free, and that it will allow more athletes to attend overall. Each Camp will include health and wellness opportunities as well as life skills programs.
