The final camp will be July 5-8 and will be targeted toward kindergarten through eighth graders and female wrestlers.

Camp staff includes NIC head wrestling coach and two-time National Junior College Athletic Association Coach of the Year Pat Whitcomb and former Olympians Kevin Jackson, Justin Abdou, Heinrich Barnes, Shaun Williams and Clarissa Chun.

All instruction will take place in NIC's Christianson Gym.

Cost is $330 for the high school camps, which includes a t-shirt and room and board. The commuter rate is $230. Cost for the kindergarten through eighth grade and girls camp is $275, or $175 for commuters.
