GUNNISON, Colo. – The Rocky Mountain Wrestling Camps are the longest-running wrestling camps in the United States and will be holding sessions for the 50th time this summer. More than 1,200 student-athletes went through the camp last summer between the Western Technique camp, the Mountaineer 5-Day Intensive Camp, Crimson Team Camp and Slate Team Camp.
Space fills up quickly for the Mountaineer 5-Day Intensive Camp on June 10-14 for seventh graders and older. This camp features training with college wrestlers and is geared for high altitude training at 7,720 feet above sea level. The Western Technique Camp will take place over the same five-day period for ages 9-18, and will focus on instruction and the perfection of existing technique. The camps will also feature 15-20 matches for the individuals during the course of the week.
The Crimson Team Camp runs June 15-19 for eighth grade teams and up, and the camps will feature 15-20 matches for teams along with instructional sessions from the Mountaineer coaching staff and camp counselors. The Slate Team Camp will feature the same lineup during the June 20-24 week.
Coaches can take advantage of additional resources for practice, fundraising and team building, and video from the instructional sessions are also available. All costs for wrestlers and coaches include meals and lodging.
Campers will have the opportunity during the camps to take part in the various recreational activities in the Gunnison Valley, including whitewater rafter, fishing and hiking.
