Camp weeks here at Fairfax Fencers are full of fun experiences, unique memory making, new friendships, and Fencing.
2018 Summer Camp Registration is now OPEN!
All of our camp coaches and assistants have many years of fencing under their belts, and are CPR and First Aid certified. We occasionally have guest coaches come and share some of their knowledge and experiences from International fencers to former Olympians, we are full of surprises. Our campers are introduced to fencing with a review of the safety rules for our club and sport, the 3 weapons, basic footwork, and blade work. By the end of the first day the campers will have received a brief history of fencing, been introduced to the safety rules, proper gear fitting, and a practice weapon will be in hand. There are plenty of breaks to review material introduced, as well as game playing to help foster those new friendships, and a love for the sport of fencing. As camp comes to a close our campers will have a mini tournament for family and friends to observe!
OUR ADVANCED CAMPS
Our Advanced Camp students will have successfully completed the Intro to Fencing camp and/or be an experienced fencer from outside sources.
During this camp, our students will be learning and finessing their foot and blade work, and using the electric gear. The Advanced camp will also introduce and review all campers regarding the different rules for all of the weapons (Foil, Epee, Saber), and may include some weapon maintenance. Of course this camp is broken up with breaks similar to our other camps, by this stage most campers have some favorite drills to practice, and more technical questions to be reviewed. There will also be more bouts occurring prior to the tournament on the last day of camp which is open to observation from family and friends.
