Half Day campers should bring a snack to camp in a clearly marked container. Full Day campers should bring a snack and lunch. We do offer a lunch option. This option is an additional $60 per camper for the week and can be indicated on the application. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide vegetarian or special dietary needs lunches. We urge those with special dietary needs to bring their own snack & lunch. We recommend that each camper bring their own water bottle as we do not provide cups. Sean Phillips Soccer does provide water coolers with which water bottles can be refilled. Please make sure that all items brought to camp are clearly marked with identification.
Campers are required to have their own clearly marked soccer ball and water bottle at camp.
The University of Illinois at Chicago is the largest institution of higher learning in the Chicago area. The campus was formed in 1982 by the consolidation of two campuses: the Medical Center campus, which dates back to the 19th century, and the comprehensive Chicago Circle campus which opened in 1965. Prior to the opening of Chicago Circle campus, the University of Illinois had a two year undergraduate program at Navy Pier which first opened in 1946 to educate returning veterans. UIC shares the rich tradition of the diversity of the city and the spirit of community that is part of the heritage of Chicago’s near west side. The newly renovated South Campus and surrounding area provides an ideal setting for hosting this soccer camp.
Getting To UIC Is Easy
UIC is conveniently located just west of the junction of the famous Chicago Circle Interchange: the Eisenhower (I-290), Kennedy (I-90/94 Northwest), and Dan Ryan (I-90/94 Southeast). Several exits provide access to the campus: Ashland, Damen, Halsted, Harrison, Morgan, Racine, Roosevelt and Taylor. Camp is a 9 minute walk from the Blue Line UIC-Halsted Stop, a 10 minute walk from the Metra Halsted Stop and 25 minutes from Oak Park by car.
