Event description

Description

One of Dare2tri’s most popular events is the annual Kid's Paratriathlon Training Camp, which is open to youth ages 6 – 21 with a physical disability or visual impairment. To ensure that all youth wanting to participate in the camp can attend, Dare2tri provides transportation for youth within Chicago city limits, as well as scholarships for any athlete who requests it. Camp clinics include open water swimming, cycling, running/pushing, transition, nutrition, and more! The Kid's Paratriathlon Training Camp is hosted annually in July and takes place at 63rd Street Beach in Chicago, Illinois.

Volunteer Roles:

Equipment Unload and Set-Up Volunteer - Volunteer will help unload equipment from trailers and set up camp area (tents, signage, pump bike tires, etc.) Some lifting is required.

Registration Table Volunteer - Volunteer will help check in athletes and other volunteers.

One on One Volunteer - Volunteer will be assigned to an individual camper and work with them throughout the day in all three disciplines (swimming, biking and running). Please bring the necessary gear to participate in all three disciplines (swim suit, towel, bike, bike helmet, running shoes, etc.) We have a limited number of upright bikes if you don't have one or can not bring yours. Let us know if you would be needing one. Some athletes may not be riding very fast and you may be able to walk/run next to them.

Photographer - Volunteer photographer will take photographs of campers throughout the day. Please bring your own camera.

Race Crew Volunteers for "Tri It Triathlon" - Volunteer will help with the "Tri It Triathlon" on the last day of camp. Roles include helping kids out of water, transferring into adaptive equipment, course marshal, aid stations, etc.

If you can only volunteer for a portion of the day, no problem! Just let us know when you are available.

Feel free to reach out to dan@dare2tri.org if you have any questions. Thanks!
