About

If you’re tired of the same old camp options and are looking for something new, fun, and different for your kids, Olympian Fencing Club’s Camp is for you! Fencers will learn swashbuckling techniques seen in movies and shows like: Puss in Boots, Wednesday, Zorro & Star Wars.  The camp will help students develop a keen focus, coordination skills, agility, balance and endurance.

The Olympic sport of fencing provides a great physical and mental workout and is a lot of fun. Learning to fence is a challenging mix of physical and tactical training that is equally suited to boys and girls. Our fencing program operates in a safe environment and we emphasize safety rules at all times.
