The Iron Wood Thrower Development Camp offers 'world-class'
instruction in the four throwing events of Track and Field: Discus,
Hammer, Javelin, and Shot Put.

We’ve proudly hosted Olympic champions, world record holders, nutritionists, training experts, sports psychologists, and academic advisors as keynote speakers. Our evening lecture series feature a comprehensive overview of the technical, physical, mental and tactical skills necessary for advancing your performance level. Additional special topics ranging from academic preparation, sport nutrition, and the college recruiting process are also traditionally covered.


We will stage the popular “Iron Wood Games” as part of our extracurricular activity schedule. This event has become a popular activity at the camp and everyone looks forward to it each year. Campers will have access to the lake for swimming and volleyball under staff supervision at designated times. SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK FOR ALL CAMPERS!!!. STAFF WILL ONLY BE PRESENT AT DESIGNATED TIMES!!



A certified athletic trainer will be on duty at all sessions.


Our sponsors present the “Iron Wood Award” for one male and one female athlete from each event at the conclusion of the camp. Several items from our camp store will also be randomly distributed as prizes throughout the week.
--Larry Johnson, former Skyline and Idaho Falls High School throws coach, member of IWT coaching staff for 20 years
"Since Iron Wood Thrower’s Camp was started with 16-18 high school throwers, many of the participants from the state of Idaho have gone on to win or place in the State championships in both men and women’s shot and discus in all five of the state classes. In addition, both the men and women’s overall state records in the shot put and discus are held by Iron Wood throwers. The camp participants also incude many throwers from all over the United States who have gone on to become successful junior college, college, and Olympic competitors. As a coach of athletes who have attended IWT over the years and who have accumulated 33 medals in men and women’s shot and discus competitions in the Idaho State championships, I highly recommend the Iron Wood Throwing Camp for both beginning and advanced throwers."
