Wrestling CampThe South's oldest and world's largest wrestling camp will sponsor four sessions of wrestling instruction at Appalachian State University this summer. The wrestling camp strives to improve the wrestling techniques of all, beginner or experienced wrestlers. With facilities including 12 separate mat areas on 35 mats, we are able to offer individual instruction in all phases of interscholastic wrestling.

Sessions are open to teams and individual campers. Individual campers will be combined to form a competitive team.


  • Open to middle school, junior high, and high school wrestlers only.
  • 2018 graduates may attend for instruction or to help coach, but cannot wrestle in matches.

Team discounts are available before May 29, 2018.
