Engaging programs for all skill levels
Camps at Northwest Fencing Center are designed for different age and skill groups. With options for all ages and experience levels, NWFC’s camps focus on the core foundations of fencing and immerse the fencer in a week of learning and experience with a variety of athletes and styles.
With over a decade of experience providing world-class fencing instruction to athletes, our accredited coaches are dedicated to providing a supportive, inspiring, and fun atmosphere to foster a love of the sport. NWFC believes in the growth of the athlete, both on the strip and off.
For athletes attending a camp from outside of the area and looking for arrangements, we suggest our partner hotel, Double Tree by Hilton. If you are traveling to NWFC and have additional questions, contact the Front Desk.

The Athena Project
December 16th & 17th, 2023
The Athena Project is an initiative at Northwest Fencing Center designed to support women and girls in fencing. The key to this support is the creation of women only fencing spaces that transcend age groups.
We will turn our 20,000 square foot facility into a women’s only space for a weekend camp/clinic event. Participant will range from 12 year old intermediate fencers through accomplished 70+ veterans. We hope that the younger fencers get to know the older fencers and see through their accomplishments the future possibilities of their continued enjoyment of the sport.
The weekend will be led by Delphine De Vore, Kat Holmes, and Sandra Marchant.
The Athena Project also plans to team up with W fencing for a women and girls summer camp combined with a women only coaches college. This extraordinary summer event will be a 3 weapon camp!
We hope the reality of a woman-only fencing space will be revolutionary. That it will foster a stronger multigenerational community where younger fencers can look for support and example, as well as giving older fencers the opportunity to mentor.
