Cavalier Fencing Camps
En Garde! Looking for something more than just the same old sport camp? Add some excitement to your summer vacation with the Cavalier Fencing Camps. We have a variety of camp experiences for the beginner and the more experienced youth fencer. Fencers will spend the week playing games and learning footwork, blade technique, tactics, and the principles of competitive fencing—in short, everything you need to know about the sport! Fencers should come dressed to work hard in loose clothing (no denim jeans) and tennis shoes. All fencing equipment is provided.
Instructor: Point Fencing Club Cavalier Staff
This camp will introduce all the basics of fencing to boys and girls ages 8-12. Learn to move
your feet and your blade just like the pirates in the movies. We will teach you everything you
need to know about foil fencing and play lots of fun fencing games to improve your skills and
stamina. On the last day of camp we’ll have a fun tournament to show off your new skills.
Boys and girls with previous fencing experience can refine their techniques at this week long
camp. Those who have participated in another fencing camp or in one of the Point’s Cavalier
classes are welcome to attend. We’ll play fun and competitive games to refine your skills
and introduce you to saber and epee fencing as well. On the last day of camp we will have a
friendly tournament to show off your new skills!
