FENCING /// 9am - Noon
Get in touch with your inner musketeer, pirate, ninja or Jedi – and join us for an intro to the exciting Olympic sport of fencing! Fencing is fast-paced and challenging, both physically and mentally. While campers are swashbuckling with their peers at our summer camp, they’re also learning valuable problem-solving skills.
Campers will learn proper fencing techniques, skills, and tactics. Through games and drills, they will be challenged to develop athletic skills, concentration, and decision making. They should be prepared to laugh, learn, and move. All safety equipment will be provided; nothing special is necessary.
