Wednesday, January 6, 2016

The 2016 National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic will be September 18-23, 2016 in San Diego, California.

The Summer Sports Clinic offers adventure sports and recreational activities such as sailing, surfing, track and field events, kayaking and cycling (hand and tandem), to those who were recently injured. Complementing the therapy provided in daily rehabilitation programs, the Clinic shares a glimpse of the many exciting recreational opportunities awaiting those Veterans who accept the challenge.

With the variety of water and summer sports available at the Clinic, this week-long journey hosts Veterans from all over the country who have a variety of injuries, ranging from traumatic brain injury and polytrauma, to spinal cord injury or loss of limb. Its fundamental purpose is to provide early intervention for Veterans battling back from injury, not only strengthening their bodies but overcoming and improving their overall being and self-worth.

The Application period is now closed.

For more information, please contact Jessica Smith-Dawson, Recreation Therapists, at 713-578-5516 or visit www.summersportsclinic.va.gov
