YOUTH (ages 8 -12) AUGUST 1-5
CADET (ages 13-17) AUGUST 8-12
The Fencing Academy of Philadelphia is excited to offer accelerated beginner camps for ages 8-17! Our full day fencing camps are designed to take students with limited or no prior fencing experience, and guide them through our first three levels of fencing! By the end of camp, students learn all of the basic footwork and armwork movements, have an understanding of the basic strategies and tactics, and will be suiting up in their white uniforms and fencing one another! The camp is full of fun and engaging activities such as skill building games, sports in the park, swashbuckling movies during lunch, group fencing games, and more! All camps are taught by certified fencing instructors, and 4-time world champion coach Maestro Mark Masters will be in attendance! All equipment needed for camp will be provided by us at no additional cost!
