The Iron Wood Thrower Development Camp offers 'world-class'
instruction in the four throwing events of Track and Field: Discus,
Hammer, Javelin, and Shot Put.

We’ve proudly hosted Olympic champions, world record holders, nutritionists, training experts, sports psychologists, and academic advisors as keynote speakers. Our evening lecture series feature a comprehensive overview of the technical, physical, mental and tactical skills necessary for advancing your performance level. Additional special topics ranging from academic preparation, sport nutrition, and the college recruiting process are also traditionally covered.


We will stage the popular “Iron Wood Games” as part of our extracurricular activity schedule. This event has become a popular activity at the camp and everyone looks forward to it each year. Campers will have access to the lake for swimming and volleyball under staff supervision at designated times. SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK FOR ALL CAMPERS!!!. STAFF WILL ONLY BE PRESENT AT DESIGNATED TIMES!!



A certified athletic trainer will be on duty at all sessions.


Our sponsors present the “Iron Wood Award” for one male and one female athlete from each event at the conclusion of the camp. Several items from our camp store will also be randomly distributed as prizes throughout the week.

"Iron Wood Thrower’s Camp has changed my life. I first went to Iron Wood as a 9th grader who was a softball player at heart. My experience at Iron Wood with both the staff and the other athletes was unlike any other sport. Because of the passion and desire I saw in those around me, Iron Wood helped me not only enjoy throwing more, but helped me fall in love with the sport of track and field. The friends and coaches I have met at the camp have continued from the time I was a young camper, through high school, college and even now as I return as a counselor and coach. Iron Wood is not only the best camp available for throwers, it is the best camp overall that I have been to because of the love and hard work of those who put it on. Thank you Iron Wood!!"
