The campers traditionally have a great time cheering on the grapplers, but the wrestlers themselves say this is one of the shows they look forward to the most every year.

"This is probably one of the most exciting crowds," said longtime wrestler George South. "I wrestle 200 times a year, but this is one of my favorites that I always come back to."

"The most amazing thing for a wrestler is when someone still believes," South added. "And that's what I love about these kids."
