The summer of 2017 will be the 12th annual teen wrestlers camp of High Altitude Wrestling at Springbrook State Park. Their camp has come a long way from when it first started in 2006 with only 15 wrestlers. With growing numbers and interest, the camp has established its own credibility and has trained many wrestlers from 17 states including Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, among others. Learn the best technique and train with other inspiring wrestlers! You will rise to be the best in this camp!
In this retreat, you will be staying at the park's dorm. The dorm rooms, practice room, and cafeteria are all air conditioned.
Aimed for teens in 7th to 12th grade, this camp is like no other intensive camp out there. Most intensive camps beat you up but don't "teach" you how to actually train for the sport of wrestling. When you leave this camp, you will have a better understanding on how to train to be the best! With low numbers of participants allowed, more attention will be given to you during the camp. They will teach you high-level techniques and not just any random moves.
You will be constantly drilled over the techniques so you will learn it. Tough training partners is also one of the highlights of the camp. There are four workouts a day: morning run or exercises, technique, hard drilling, and sparring. You will also go through "Wacky Wednesday"! Will you survive?
When you're not training, you can enjoy canoeing or kayaking, archery, gun safety or shooting, team building, hiking, and other activities. There will also be time set aside for swimming at the lake, whiffle ball, fishing, going to town for ice cream, and bowling.
High Altitude Wrestling Club was established in 2005 and is owned and operated by Chad Tunink. What once started off with 10 wrestlers has grown into one of Iowa’s top training clubs. High Altitude Wrestling Club trains hundreds of wrestlers each year at their different training locations across Iowa. They have wrestlers driving over two hours each way just to practice wrestling.
The club wrestlers have not only proven themselves locally with numerous individual and team state titles but also, nationally with earning many All-American and national championship honors. In 2010, High Altitude Wrestling Club won the prestigious 2010 Tulsa nationals team trophy! Their success is based on their proven system of wrestling technique.
Not only does the Club offer training sites all over Iowa, they offer numerous camps throughout the year (pre-season, in-season, winter break, and summer camps). Their summer camps at Springbrook State Park started off with only one camp and now they have up to six camps a year with many carrying a waiting list to attend the camp.
Fun activities at the park lake are included in the price.
This wrestling camp will take place at Springbrook State Park, Iowa, USA.
