April Break Fencing Camp

Offered only in our Cambridge location.

Ages 8-13 exclusively.

If you're over the age of 13, your camp participation will be denied even if the website will take your registration (because of the setting limitations)

Fencing camp designed for beginner, and intermediate fencers.

Our Youth Invitational Program is encouraged to register.

The fencers will be divided by age/level: beginner fencers will acquire basic fencing skills including footwork, bladework, & distance control. We're using electrical equipment, and teach the basic scoring rules, understand fencing etiquette & sportsmanship.

More experienced fencers will focus on furthering their technique, strategic thinking, situational bouting, & conditioning.

Individual lessons are available after/before and/or during the camp hours, upon request.
