Several youths are taking part in Olympian Ken Chertow's Weekend Warrior Camp at Point Pleasant High School.

Chertow is teaching a two-day camp at Point Pleasant High School Saturday and Sunday.

Chertow is an accomplished wrestler as he's a three time NCAA All-American and West Virginia State Champion in high school.

He said this weekend's camp is about teaching the kids multiple things. 

"Teach them wrestling, but motivate them to work hard heading into the season, develop an intense work ethic, teach them how to focus and really perfect their skills," he said.

This is the second year Chertow has came to Point Pleasant High School to teach the two day camp.
