Over the years counselors have not only been helpful in the inner workings of camp, but they are also role models for the athletes.  Counselors understand the overnight experience and all that Iron Wood Camp has to offer the campers. Their role at camp is to provide assistance to all coaches and staff during training sessions and daily activities. Counselors are also expected to act in a professional manner at all times.

--Larry Johnson, former Skyline and Idaho Falls High School throws coach, member of IWT coaching staff for 20 years
"Since Iron Wood Thrower’s Camp was started with 16-18 high school throwers, many of the participants from the state of Idaho have gone on to win or place in the State championships in both men and women’s shot and discus in all five of the state classes. In addition, both the men and women’s overall state records in the shot put and discus are held by Iron Wood throwers. The camp participants also incude many throwers from all over the United States who have gone on to become successful junior college, college, and Olympic competitors. As a coach of athletes who have attended IWT over the years and who have accumulated 33 medals in men and women’s shot and discus competitions in the Idaho State championships, I highly recommend the Iron Wood Throwing Camp for both beginning and advanced throwers."
