Is there any danger that your camp will fill up and I won't be able to attend?
We don't have a cap on any of our wrestling camps. If it appears that we are going to be getting more campers than expected, we will hire more counselors and clinicians to help with the extra load. While our housing capabilities are limited, we have never had to turn anyone away as of yet. The best way to avoid any kind of problem however, is to pre-register well before the starting date of your camp.
Do you accept walk-ons?
Yes, we accept walk-ons - but we strongly suggest for both your comfort and our efficiency that all campers pre-register. When we are approached with a lot of walk-ons, it is difficult for us to provide the same type of service during registration that we can to people that have pre-registered with us. This results in longer lines, restructuring of room schedules, and shortages in give-away t-shirts and meal bands. Again, we can't stress enough the importance of pre-registering for all of the wrestling camps. An additional fee of $30 dollars will be added to your tuition for Registering less than 7 days prior to your camp.
What are the dates of your camps?
What do I need to bring with me to camp?
As soon as we receive your application at our office, and you are registered into our database, you will receive a Camper's Packet. In this packet you will find any other forms that you may have to fill out (ie. Medical Information), and a booklet which describes everything you need to bring with you.
Included in those items to bring are:
- Items for your room - A light blanket, pillow, sheets and pillow case. It is also recommended that you bring a fan and a clock for your dorm room.
- Personal items - such as a toothbrush, comb, towels, wash cloth, soap, casual clothes, light jacket and a swim suit.
- Wrestling gear - such as wrestling shoes, workout shorts and T-shirts, head gear, knee pads if needed, combination lock and a bag to carry your shoes to the mat area. You should have several changes of wrestling practice clothes. (There are coin-operated washers and dryers in the residence halls.) Head gear is not mandatory, but is recommended.
- Medical supplies - Each camper needs to bring his or her own medical supplies. Our training staff will assist you in all medical needs such as taping and therapy. In addition, campers requiring any medication should bring that to registration with them. Our training staff will store the medicine for you and make sure you receive your regular dosages.
- Medical History Form - If you do not return the medical form within two weeks prior to the start of your camp, please bring it with you to registration. Itâ€™s very important that this be signed by a parent or guardian.
- Optional items - Tennis courts will be available at certain times of camp, provided you bring your own equipment. A camp store will be open at various times during camp. You may choose to bring extra money with you to purchase snacks, soda, clothing, or to play video games.
Do I need to see a doctor for a physical before coming to your camp?
No. While there is a Medical Information Form that needs to be filled out before you are allowed to participate in any camp activities, this form can easily be filled out by one of your parents. It basically gives us a brief medical history on you, makes us aware of any allergies or medical conditions you may have, tells us who to contact if we need further information, and verifies for us the fact that you carry your own medical insurance.
Will you accept girls to your camp?
Yes. We merely ask that if this is the case, you let us know about it ahead of time so that we can make the proper housing and facility accommodations for you. We have had many girls attend our camps, both as commuters and resident campers.
