Introductory Camps - no experience needed!

Curious about fencing? Our Introductory Fencing Camps teach the basics of the Olympic sport of fencing for your 7 to 12 year old. Fencing engages both mind and body and teaches problem solving while improving reflexes and agility.   Fencing does not require a specific body type - fencers develop different styles based on their individual size and strength. Fencing requires respect; fencers salute at the end of the match regardless of outcome, win or lose. RFC provides an open fun environment for kids to learn fencing.  Participants will learn footwork, play fencing related games, learn the basics of blade work and technique.  Every camp features a mini fencing competition on the last day – parents are welcome to attend!

Our coaches are all full time professionals - we do not use students to run our camps.  Our coaches all have experience teaching and competing at a national and international level.  They are all coach/professional members of USA Fencing and they are all Safesport certified.

 

Camps are half day from 9am – 12 noon for boys and girls ages 7 - 12.  We try to group fencers with others in their age group so please let us know if your camp week(s) are flexible.

We're excited to offer two dedicated weeks of camp for the youngest students - ages 5 to 7 from July 15th to 19th.  We are also hosting two weeks of teen summer camps from August 7th to 11th in addition to youth camps the same weeks. The teen camp is for boys and girls ages 13-17. It is open to teens who have never fenced, and is also a great way for beginning teen students to refresh their fencing skills during the summer to be ready for the fall.

Fencers must wear sports clothing and sneakers.  Please no crocs, sandals or jeans – all clothing should be flexible. 

 

Use of all needed protective equipment is included.
