We currently have 2, perhaps 3 wrestlers attending a wrestling/activity camp July 19-22, and they are looking for some of their fellow wrestling teammates to join them. The grades of the ZM boys looking to attend are 2nd, 3rd, and 5th. The camp offers a good mixture of wrestling and outdoor activities. Some of the activities include canoeing/kayaking, archery, team building, hiking, fishing, and bowling.
Last year ZM had 6 wrestlers attend the camp and the boys had a blast. The camp offers very good one-on-one help in the wrestling room as well as good supervision during the outdoor activities. The 6 ZM boys were among a group of 25 or so. The camp is held at a state park so many of the outdoor activities are run by the Iowa DNR staff. Last year all the ZM kids got to stay in the same room. So if we can get enough wrestlers going, we will see if they can accommodate us in the same manner.
You can learn more about the camp at http://www.highaltitudewrestling.com/camps/summer-campsclinics/. Our wrestlers are attending the Top/Bottom Wrestling Camp from July 19-22. A reminder you can use your Kwik Trip money to help pay for the camp. If you don’t know what the Kwik Trip program is, learn about it here.
Please e-mail me (email@example.com) if you are interested in having your wrestler attend. I will get you in touch with the parents of the wrestlers that are currently attending so you can coordinate rides and exchange other details.
If you want to watch some wrestling this weekend, head down to the RCTC Fieldhouse and watch the MN/USA Kids & Cadets State Greco (Saturday) and State Freestyle (Sunday) tournaments. Good luck to those participating!
