Location Information: The Allentown Econo Lodge features an outdoor pool, game room, and full service restaurant. We will utilize over 12,000 square feet of air-conditioned training space at the spacious convention center. We will eat, sleep, and train in this excellent learning and training facility. Wrestling Videos can be viewed throughout the day in our video study lounge.

Some families design a vacation around camp and join their young wrestlers at camp. There are amusement parks, malls, entertainment, restaurants, and more only a short drive from our camp. Also note that many of our high school campers take time before or after camp to visit colleges. There are over 30 colleges in Pennsylvania with wrestling programs including 14 Division I Wrestling programs. We work hard to prepare our campers to succeed in college on and off the mats, and we often help place our dedicated campers in good colleges.

Team and Group Discounts: We offer significant Team and Group Discounts for as few as 8 wrestlers of all ages from one community. In addition, we have programs that allow coaches and parents to attend camp with their group at no charge. Please email for more information.

Double Camp Discounts: Many campers attend at two locations. These campers will receive a $100 double camp discount on the 2nd week of camp.

Airport Shuttle: Pickups are available from the nearest airport or bus station. If you need this service, please e-mail or call 814-466-3466 when you enroll, as arrangements must be made at least two weeks beforehand.

Coaches and Parents: Coaches and parents are welcome to attend any and all sessions free. Contact our office for food and housing options.

Long-Time Super Gold Camper and HTC Student Quentin Wright. Quentin is a 2X NCAA Champion and 2x PA State Champion.

Thanks again for another outstanding year at summer camp. I am very excited about the fact that both of our Southern Columbia's elementary coaches were able to attend your camp with some of our other team members. I know they were all extremely impressed with how well organized and the large number of world class clinicians that you have on staff at your camp. You run the best camps in the nation. Keep up the great job and we will see you in the fall at HTC. I included a couple of pics of my son Jake with Brad, Quentin, Troy & Mike.
