FAQs

  • Where is the location?
    The Mustang Wrestling Camp will be held at Camp San Luis Obispo located at 10 Sonoma Ave., San Luis Obispo, CA 93405. Parking, check-in, and check-out will be located outside of the main gate entry point to the right in the adjacent parking lot. Look for the large Cal Poly tents in the lot. Our location offers fields for games and leadership activities, 10 paintball fields, a hike and bonfire area, plenty of mat space for technique sessions, and sleeping quarters that include a lounge area with TV and space to hangout.
  • What happens if the camp is sold out -- is there a waitlist?
    The past three summers (2021, 2022, & 2023) have sold out completely, with some camps selling out as early as three months before it begins. When we reach capacity, the Camp Director will start a wait list. Last year's waitlist surpassed 100+ entrants. You can be added to the wait list by completing the WAITLIST Registration. On average, five to ten campers from the waitlist can be accommodated due to cancelations.
  • What happened to the Girls Residential Camp?
    Cal Poly does not currently have a women's wrestling program. In previous years, we brought in female clinicians from various other college programs that host women's wrestling. There are many options available for women's residential wrestling camps across the state, a list that is rapidly growing. We hope to, one day, add a women's wrestling program at Cal Poly. Females are able to join the Technique Camp or Beginner Camp as commuters. We will not have female clinicians on site.
  • Is there a paintball park?
    Gladiator Paintball Park is located on site and has been reserved. The charge to play paintball is $60, which includes several full games of paintball, equipment, and mid-grade paintballs. Parents/guardians must sign the Paintball Waiver and pay the additional paintball fee during the online camp registration process for the camper to be eligible to participate in paintball. Minimum age requirement participation in paintball is 10+ years and Splatterball is 8+ years. The paintball waiver is now required for all registrants due to numerous late additions for paintball play.

Hospital If the Athletic Trainer believes any Camper needs to be taken to the hospital, the Camp Director will drive them to French hospital. After the visit, the Camp Director will make copies of the hospital paperwork for the camp and keep the paperwork for the parent/guardian. Paperwork will be given to the parent/guardian at the time of pick up. The Camp Director will ensure the Camper is communicating with their parent/guardian.
