The camp’s emphasis will be on bouting and tactical awareness. Fencing activities include organized bouting, tactical drills, video review & observation, group feedback, and team bouting. 

This camp is ideal for the committed fencer with experience from our Youth Intermediate classes and up. If you are not sure if the camp is for you, ask your coach.

Schedule: M-F 9 AM – 4 PM

Cost & Payment Due Dates:

  • Camp: $600

  • 1 week prior to camp: NO REFUNDS. 50% may be applied to a future camp.

Health & Safety Protocols:

  • Coaches, athletes, spectators, and staff, MUST wear a face-covering that covers the mouth and nose.
  • All participants and staff must present either a covid-19 vaccination card documenting full vaccination 2 weeks prior to camp or a negative PCR covid test not more than 72 hours old.
  • The camp runs longer than 72 hours. We will therefore require another test for unvaccinated individuals Thursday morning of camp. We will not require a PCR test for the second test, a quick test will be sufficient, and we will supply those test kits.
  • If anyone tests positive we will retest to make sure the test was accurate.  If the test is still positive, then all unvaccinated persons will be asked to leave and recommended to quarantine for 14 days.

Lunches are included. Bring snacks and a water bottle.

At this time, we are not able to provide housing from our host families.
