The Luther wrestling camps, directed by Luther head wrestling coach Dave Mitchell, have grown into some of the largest and most recognized athletic camps in the Midwest. More than 1,000 wrestlers from 10-plus states will attend the 2017 Luther College Wrestling Camps throughout July, making the series of camps some of the biggest camps in the country.
