Info for Flying to Camp

Our camp is in Altoona, PA at the Blair County Convention Center (blairconventioncenter.com). Our two week Super Gold Campers stay at the attached Courtyard by Marriott. Dedicated wrestlers fly from across the nation to attend our camps. We have also welcome wrestlers from many different countries.

We will pick up our campers at both Altoona and State College airports on Sunday June 26. We recommend you arrive between 10am and 2pm but realize you may need to arrive later and this is fine.  Simply email us your itinerary after you book your ticket so we know your arrival and departure times. Departure is recommended between 2-5pm July 10. Final session ends at 11am so we can make departure work earlier if needed.

There is a $50 charge each way for a ride to camp from State College airport. There is a $30 charge each way for a ride from Altoona airport.  We make most pick-ups with a professional shuttle van company called Freedom Shuttle.  We also involve some of our staff for individual pick-ups.

We also provide airport shuttle for our shorter Gold Medal and Kids Camps. Simply let us know your arrival and departure details so we can make advance plans.

We recommend you book flights ASAP to get the ideal schedule and lowest prices. Please let us know your flight plans when you book flight.
