2020 Applications NOW OPEN!


** As of now (May 27), the state of MN is not allowing us to operate. **


We are still hopeful to run camps this summer at some capacity. We will be updating folks via our website, email newsletter, and social media as soon as we have a concrete date to open.


Regulations are changing weekly. If we get the green light we will begin making camp placements immediately.


We appreciate your patience and understanding through this. If any camps are cancelled a full refund will be given.


Thank you for your support and God Bless!

Thorn Camp Mission

Our mission for every Thorn Camp is to create an ideal training environment.  We do this with a unique application process where wrestlers of the same size and ability are placed in the same camp.  

At camp the athletes will get a wrestler to coach ratio of 8 to 1.  They will work extensively on takedown’s (tie up, set up, shot, finish) as well as some mat work.  

Muscle Memory will be developed through a progressive system of hard drilling, and each evening session is devoted to live wrestling where your wrestler will get 8-12 matches with different partners.

Campers will learn the techniques and training methods that won the Thorn Brothers 11 individual State Titles and helped each one become Division I All-Americans. Remember, summer is the best time to make a jump on your opponents.

Put in the time now!
