The camp is located in Cedar Falls, Iowa and is known as the Iron Sharpens Iron Team Camp. Athletes are able to compete and learn while also being safe. Temperatures are taken every morning and color coordinated wrist bands are given out to help identify those approved to be in the facilities.

Guyton said, "There's hand sanitizer everywhere, there's cleaning spaces and all type of things around in order to try and prevent any problems."

The campers will return to town on Saturday.
