Intrepid Travel Club

ICLRU Intrepid Travel Club

The ICLRU Intrepid Travel Club primarily meets the 4th Monday of the month (except for holidays and when we are away on trips) 11:45-12:45 – Room 613 at Roosevelt University Campus – Schaumburg, IL.

Presently, we have 140 people on our list who receive notices of the meetings and the “Update” afterwards which summarizes the topics discussed at the meeting.

You do not need to be a member of ICLRU to attend meetings, be on the list, or be on our “group” trips. We welcome friends, interested travelers who you have met on other trips, family members, etc.

At present we have several trips in process with Grand Circle tours which have additional spaces. Details below.

All our trips are open to non ICL folks, so if you know of someone who might be interested in ANY of our trips, please do not hesitate to put them in touch with the group leader.
