2024 Summer Camp

What can be more exciting for kids than learning how to use a sword?

This is not your average “Summer Camp”. This is a sports camp that teaches the Olympic Sport of Fencing. Each day of camp runs from 9am to 2pm. Our summer camps are great for both new fencers and those who already have previous experience (including fencers in our Beginner and Intermediate programs). For some activities, fencers will be divided into groups based on experience; new fencers learning basic skills while returning fencers continue to improve their skills. All campers will work and play together while making new friends and having lots of fun. Our camper to coach/counselor ratio is very low which allows campers to have a high-quality experience.
 
Camp activities include a variety of games which develop and improve the skills needed for fencing. In addition to learning the physical aspect of the sport, campers will learn the history of the sport, safety instruction, and tactics to apply while fencing an opponent. The Friday session includes a camp tournament, and parents are invited to attend part or all of the day. 

    • All Fencing equipment is provided.
    • USA Fencing membership ($10) required for previous fencing campers. NEW campers receive a free trial membership.
    • Campers need to bring lunch for each day

    • Cost: $400 per week for full-day sessions
    • Limited to 12 campers per week, so don't delay!
