Camp Philosophy: The VIP College Prep Camp is a 4 day camp designed for small group learning, starting the college application process, and those that desire to take their wrestling careers to high-achieving academic colleges and universities. We will focus on individualized specific wrestling techniques, video analysis of competition training and starting the College Application Essay.

This camp is open to the first 28 campers. All technique sessions are private one on one individual training session with the coaching staff and partner, so training is wrestling style specific. This camp will consist of individualized wrestling technique sessions, drilling, wrestling, conditioning, and video analysis during the camp. This camp will not only make you a better wrestler on the mat but help you begin navigating through the college application process.

This camp will require planning from the camper, parents, and Brown Wrestling coaching staff. Registration will close one week prior to the first day of camp so we can plan and prepare for each camper's specific needs. More information will be shared after camper registration. We recommend that you enroll with a partner of the same size and ability to maximize the benefits of this camp but we will pair up campers that register individually.

Camp will include:
Style specific training – all technique sessions will be one-on-one skill instruction with a coach and partner, so every individual’s needs are met with precision.
Video analysis and review of training and competition
Pre-match preparation and mental approach
Equipment Package - Performance shirts, shorts, and sweatshirt

Important Health Advisory

Due to recent outbreaks of measles, in consultation with Brown University’s Health Services and General Counsel’s Office, Pre-College Programs and Sports Camps are prohibiting any student or athlete from attending these programs if they have not completed the measles vaccinations.

This decision was made because of the structure of the summer programs: measles is a highly infectious disease that can incubate for two weeks before any symptoms appear. Given that many of our students and athletes are present on campus from anywhere from 1 day to 3 weeks, and then depart, the opportunities for this disease to be spread within and beyond our community is significant enough to warrant this kind of decision.


Brown University Sports Camps are open to any and all entrants that meet the listed age requirements for each camp.
