"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!!"
