Monday, July 18th-Friday, July 22nd | 9:00am-12:00pm | Kids Camp: Introduction to Fencing

Explore the heart of the warrior while learning the fundamentals of foil and saber fencing. Fencing helps young people develop focus, coordination, balance, and endurance, and also emphasizes the Olympic values of friendship, respect, and excellence. Attendees will have fun learning the history of the sport, the various weapon styles, and of course...fence with swords!! Students will also participate in fencing-themed crafts and games. Parents can witness the fun firsthand when campers showcase their skills on the last day!
