Who should attend Trench Camp?
Any high school freshman, sophomore, junior or senior who wants to take their O-D line skills the next level. Whether you’re looking to make the first team varsity squad or you want to make an impression on college recruiters, Trench Camp is for you.
What do I need to bring to camp?
Campers should bring their own helmets, shoes, shells (shells are only needed for the Portland camp since it is a full contact camp) and mouthpiece. The camp will not be offering any type of rental equipment so it is mandatory that you supply your own. If you do not have the above items you will not be able to participate in Trench Camp. You are required to bring a copy of proof-of-insurance. Without proof-of-insurance your camper will not be allowed to participate. It is also a good idea to bring water, snacks and sunscreen.
Will Trench Camp Provide Lunch/Meals?
In the past, our camp has provided sandwiches at lunch, however, as of 2018, all campers will be required to bring their own lunch on Friday and Saturday. This year’s BBQ has been canceled as a result of COVID regulations in the state of Oregon. We will continue to provided water and Gatorade for all meals and breaks.
Will this be a full contact camp?
Yes, our Salem, OR camp will be a full contact camp so helmets and pads are required.
