Cowboy Wrestling Camps

8 Day Intensive Camp
July 7th - 14th (TENTATIVE)
Resident: $925 / Commuter: $475

The Cowboy Intensive Camp is designed for the serious wrestler ages 12 and up. This camp will incorporate technique and live competition as well as strength and conditioning. The camp will focus on skill instruction and strength / conditioning exercises the first week, while the second week will be devoted to technique and live wrestling. Intensive campers will lift in our state-of-the-art facility that houses an 8600 square feet training area and they will be instructed by UW strength and conditioning staff members. An All-Star team* will be derived from the first camp tournament and these selected individuals will form a team that will compete for a dual team title during the second week. Campers will also train side-by-side with the University of Wyoming wrestling team and will learn the skills and training it takes to be the best.

All-Star Intensive Team

Using the first camp tournament results, an Intensive All-Star team will be created to compete in Team Dual competition. This designation is an honor and we expect our intensive campers to train and prepare to earn a spot on the All-Stars Team.

Resident campers will be housed double occupancy in the UW dormitories and will eat buffet style meals in the UW cafeteria.


Three meals will be served on each full day of camp for resident campers. The first camp session is at 3 pm (after lunch) on the day of registration, therefore, the first meal will be served at DINNER on registration day. The last meal will be served at breakfast on the last day of camp before the camp tournament. Pizza orders will be taken each night for $10 and snacks and drinks will be available for purchase at each session. Commuters are responsible for ALL of their meals. If a commuter want to purchase meals at the Washakie Cafeteria, please let us know.

Health and Insurance

Wrestling camps are designed to be physically demanding, and applicants should arrive at camp in good health and physical condition. While every precaution will be taken to ensure the safety of each camper, injuries or illnesses incurred during the camp will not be the responsibility of Mark Branch’s Cowboy Wrestling camps or staff members. No refunds will be made. Each camper will be responsible to provide health insurance information before check-in and everyone will be required to sign a liability release form before camp begins.
