CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT TIMES & TRAINING SESSIONS

Registration (Day 1 of your camp) will be between 8:30 and 9:15 a.m.  Please, if you arrive early, wait in the parking lot for registration to begin.  We have coaches and campers sleeping in the bunkhouses who may have arrived in the middle of the night in order to be here on time for Day 1.  Do not wander around the campground area until you have been checked in and told where to go.

There will be a registration table set up in the parking lot.   After checking in please help your wrestler get settled in his bunk and then say your goodbyes.  The parking lot has limited space and we need to let others in to drop off their sons.  All parents need to leave the campground by 10:00 a.m. so we can get started with camp.

 Session times for day 1 will be modified for registration.  First meal of camp will be lunch.  Be sure you’ve eaten a good breakfast.  We will begin the first session at 10:00 a.m. sharp.  Group 1 will go 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. and Group 2 will go 11:00 a.m. to noon.  We will follow the regular schedule after lunch.

Group 1 – Training Times Meal Times
Session I 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Breakfast 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.
Session II 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Lunch 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Last session on the last day will end at 4:00 p.m..  Group 1 goes 1:00 – 2:15, Group 2 goes 2:15 – 4:00.  Check-out time on our last day of camp will be 4:30 pm.  Group 1 wrestlers are welcome to leave after their session. Please be there by 4:30 p.m. to pick up your wrestler!  If you can’t make it in by 4:30, please call and let us know when to expect you.  We have airport runs and clean-up to do.

Any wrestlers flying out early the last day will be moved up to Group 1 so they can make their departure times.

On the final day of camp, we will re-hit and re-teach key areas that the campers had difficulty with and brush up on some final areas.  Session II of the last day will be a very physical review/hard drill session.  EVERYTHING covered will be hit many, many times in order to fully reinforce the week’s worth of training.  Parents are encouraged to come early and watch what their wrestler has learned over the past four days.  Shower, room-check, and head home at 4:30 p.m.  

MEALS

 Three meals a day are provided and will be held in the campground’s dining pavilion.

*If your camper has special dietary needs please contact us at jackie@purlerwrestling.com to make arrangements.  No peanut products are used in our meal menus, peanut items may be for sale in the concession stand.  If your child has a severe peanut allergy, please notify us so we can pull those items.

REC-TIME

As you can see from the schedule, we will have plenty of time for fun and hanging out.  We usually have quite the washers tournament at camp!  We have a game room area for wrestlers to hang out and watch movies or play games in.  We have plenty of room on our 9 acres for outdoor activities as well.  There is a volleyball court and large field for outdoor games. No bikes or scooters please!  We can’t be responsible for watching them during your son’s training sessions and they may end up broken!  No water balloons.

PACKING LIST (We have A/C in the bunks, no need for a fan!)

All wrestlers are allowed ONE suitcase along with a back pack/wrestling bag and a mesh laundry bag.  Each wrestler will have a 40x 30×24 inch shelf and ALL of their gear should be kept on that shelf in order to keep the floor clear for the safety of the kids.  Please no trunks/construction style tool boxes.  We do not want our floors scratched by dragging them across the bunkhouse.

Here is a list of some things you should pack:

  1. The number of workout clothes to pack varies on the wrestler.  Some of our little guys don’t sweat as much and won’t need a fresh set of clothes after each session.  Our bigger guys may need to change after each session.  Some may just need to change tops, so please plan accordingly.  Maintaining a clean environment is of our upmost importance so it is to your son’s advantage to have too many clothes and not need them.  Sorry, no laundry services available for the five day camps.  Five day camps have 14 sessions and the fourteen day camp has 21 sessions before the laundry service is available.
  2. Mesh laundry bag to store dirty clothes away from clean clothes and allow them to dry.
  3. Every camper needs a roll of athletic tape.
  4. Two towels (need two so they can dry out between showers.)
  5. Toiletries, MUST include a good antibacterial soap.  (NO SPRAY ON DEODORANT PLEASE)
  6. Sun block is suggested for outdoor rec time, bug repellant lotion or oil, no spray please.
  7. Wrestling gear (headgear is not required), Neoprene knee pads are highly recommended.  Pack two pairs so the spare can dry out between practices.
  8. TWIN sized sheet set, a light blanket, and pillow (You have a mattress provided on your bunk.)
  9. Electronic games, DVD players, and cell phones are “bring at your own risk!!”  There are no lockers to lock away these valuable items during your session time. If you choose to bring these items you should consider purchasing a small footlocker and padlock to bring with you or a luggage lock.  Movies should be limited to a PG 13 rating to accommodate most campers.  Inappropriate movies will be confiscated!
  10. ALL WRESTLERS MUST BRING A SPORT WATER BOTTLE WITH THEIR NAME ON IT TO THEIR TRAINING SESSION.  WATER FOUNTAINS ARE AVAILABLE TO REFILL THEIR BOTTLES.  Small water bottles are for sale for $5 if your wrestler forgets one.
  11. Some type of skin protectant (foam or wipe) is required to keep skin infections down.  Wipes are available at most drug stores, as long as they are anti-bacterial they will work.

LAUNDRY SERVICE FOR WRESTLERS DOING MULTIPLE CAMPS BACK TO BACK AND STAYING WITH US OR DOING THE DREAM SEASON CAMP

We offer a bulk laundry service for campers staying in between camps and on day 7 of the Dream Season Camp.  If you want your wrestler to use this service please send $15 cash for each laundry day they may need (sorry, we do not have change) in an envelope marked with HIS NAME and “laundry”.  We will cover the laundry soap and fabric softener.  A mesh laundry bag is also necessary, please make sure it is free of holes!  We are not responsible for items that fall out of the laundry bag. Please make sure your son’s name is clearly labeled on the bag!!

RULES FOR CAMPERS AND PARENTS

Athletes are to stay within the boundaries of our campground at all times.  Anyone caught off the premises will be sent home with no refund.  Please make sure your son is aware he is here to learn and to train.  Everyone paid good money to come and have a positive camp experience and that’s what we intend to provide.  Any property damage will result in a fine!!

No bare feet on the wrestling mats.  All wrestlers are to change shoes prior to getting on the mats.

In order to maintain a clean and sanitary bunkhouse we do not allow snacks in the bunkhouses.  There is no area to store food so wrestlers are not allowed to bring in their own snacks.  We have concession items to purchase for $1 to $2 that they can consume in the rec room/dining hall areas.  They range from protein bars to candy bars, popcorn, burritos, pizza pockets, and gatorades to sodas.

Parents are allowed to watch the last sessions only.  We are maintaining a distraction-free zone.  Parents are allowed to come visit your wrestler, but must meet in the designated parking lot with the picnic tables to do so.  For the safety of the campers, we do not allow parents, friends, or family members around the kids at camp and will not allow any parents to roam about the camp grounds, dining pavilion, bunk houses, etc.  If you decide to take them off-campus please have them check out with a coach before you leave.

EMERGENCY SITUATIONS

In case of serious injury, EMS will be called at once.  In case of minor injuries/illnesses that require medical attention, we will transport the athlete to the hospital/urgent care.  We must have a signed release waiver for your wrestler to receive medical treatment.  A medical release is given below for you to copy, paste, and print.  Have your wrestler keep it in their suitcase in case it is needed.  Please have your child store a copy of their insurance ID card on their phone to help speed up the check in process at the hospital or urgent care.  In case of bangs and bruises, we will handle them with our med kit.  If your son chooses not to continue with practice, he will not continue.  In case of minor injury, your son will be encouraged to take notes of all sessions. Remember, no trainer is on-hand at camp.
