The summer of 2016 will be our 11th Annual camp at Springbrook State Park.  The camp has come a long way from when it first started in 2006 with 15 wrestlers.  The second year (2007) we had over 70 wrestlers attend resulting in three full camps.  A Father/Son, 5 Day Intensive Camp and 4th Technique Camp were added in 2008 to support the growing numbers and interest.  In 2009, I added a Youth Intensive Camp for youth wrestlers wanting to move to the next level and it had been a huge success.  The youth intensive camp has carried a waiting list every single year since it started!  In 2011 I adjusted our camps and turned the technique camp into a Takedown camp and also added a Top/Bottom camp.  Every year these camps grow and kids love them.  We have had wrestlers from Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, New Jersey, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin attend.

5 Day Intensive : 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 an understanding of HOW to train to be the BEST! There are 4 workouts a day: morning run/exercises, technique, hard drilling and live. You will also go through “ Wacky Wednesday !” Will you survive?

Father/Son : Fathers will get to wrestle along with their sons and learn this great sport. Any activity your son does you will do!!

Takedown Training Camp:  This camp focuses on takedowns, short offense/defense, bad positions, scrambling and other things.  Athletes will go through three very structured practices per day (including drilling, hard drilling and LIVE!) and get a feel for each move taught.  Your son will get hands on attention and learn the moves taught.

Top/Bottom Training Camp : This camp will focus on learning how to turn/pin people and being able to escape from anyone. There will be three very structured practices a day including drilling, hard drilling and LIVE! When you leave camp you will be able to turn and escape from anyone!

TEAM Camp:  Limited numbers 40-50 max.  Attention by coaching staff (1 coach to every 8-10 wrestlers).  Taught a proven technique system.  Drilled over the technique system so wrestlers get a “feel” for it (muscle memory).  Controlled LIVE Wrestling environment  (we will control the live wrestling and make sure they learn it).  Live situations over techniques taught.  Will wrestle between 40-60 matches  (2-3 x more than a regular Team Camp).  Team Unity activities such as kayaking, glow in the dark bowling, gun shooting, archery, wiffle ball, etc.  Mental (goal setting) Training.  MORE information below:

Youth Intensive CampThis camp is designed for the youth wrestler who wants to move to the next level. There will be four workouts a day: a morning run/exercise, technique, hard drilling and live! The youth camp will also go through “ Wacky Wednesday !” Will you survive?


The DNR will be leading us in: canoeing/kayaking, archery, gun safety/shooting, team building, hiking, and other activities. There will also be time set aside for swimming at the lake, wiffle ball, fishing, going in town for ice cream, and bowling. *All camps do the same activities!

The dorm rooms, practice room and cafeteria are all air conditioned!



Bring your wrester’s to High Altitude Wrestling’s Summer Team Camp!   Not only will you develop team unity you will also learn the same techniques at our other summer camps which have been around since 2005!  The great thing with this camp is if you want your whole team to come great; if only 4-8 or so can attend send them and they will improve!

Why Is This Camp is DIFFERENT

  1. Limited numbers 40-50 max wrestlers allowed in camp
  2. Attention by coaching staff (1 coach to every 8-10 wrestlers)
  3. Taught a proven technique system not just moves by different clinicians
  4. Drilled over the technique system so wrestlers get a “feel” for it (muscle memory)
  5. Controlled LIVE Wrestling environment (we will control the live wrestling and make sure they learn it)
  6. Live situations over techniques taught
  7. Will wrestle between 40-60 matches (2-3 x more than a regular Team Camp)
  8. Team Unity activities such as kayaking, glow in the dark bowling, gun shooting, archery, wiffle ball, etc
  9. Mental Training (your wrestlers will be taught how to set and follow goals)



Our camp is designed to have two technique sessions during the day where wrestlers learn & drill a proven system of technique to get the feel (muscle memory) for it.  At night, we will have 2 hours of live wrestling where the athletes will be put into LIVE situations over the techniques taught (to practice the techniques and gain confidence in them) and also wrestle LIVE matches.  You could honestly walk out of our camp with 40-60 matches under your belt!  The improvement your athletes will make at this camp will be UNMATCHED!

Consist of 1-2 technique sessions taught by different clinicians and hundreds if not thousands of wrestlers trying to learn the moves with few coaches or helpers.  They offer a night session where wrestlers compete in “dual meets” resulting in about 10-20 minutes of actual “live” wrestling.   Wrestlers leave camp learning a few moves, wrestling some matches but NOT improving!

As you can see your wrestlers will: 1. Learn a system of technique, 2. Learn how to drill properly and get the feel for moves, 3. Wrestle live situations over the moves taught so they learn them and gain confidence in them, and 4. Wrestle 2-3 x more matches then a regular Team Camp making your wrestlers and your team better!
