Rat Pack Wrestling camp

This year was the first of our annual Rat Pack Wrestling camp! This trip was our way of rewarding some of our hardest working wrestlers. Camp was held at a luxurious cabin up in Lake Arrowhead from Friday to Sunday. While training was a must, we were also able to fit in lots of FUN! Everything from swimming, wake boarding, fishing, to yes, even Guitar Hero….this weekend was truly one not to be forgotten. Each wrestler also received an exclusive, limited edition Rat Pack shirt available only to those who attended the trip. A big THANK YOU to all who participated and helped make this trip a successful one!
