Summer Camps are Filling Fast!

Campers will have an action-packed week learning the skills of competitive fencing while making new friends. It's fun, fast, and exciting! Students learn equipment care, fencing rules, and simple mental training techniques. Every day includes a bouting session where campers fence each other, as well as individual lessons from the instructor. Camps are for ages 8 - 14. The July camp is July 18th - 22nd and the August camp is August 8th - 12th. Click on our "Forms and Fees" tab above to see our full brochure and registration forms.
