Olympic Fencing Academy is a full-day summer camp program designed for beginners to intermediate fencers where we introduce sport fencing in a positive and active environment. We use a wide variety of games and exercises to build self-confidence, athletic awareness and the basic skills needed to develop as a fencer such as hand-eye coordination, quick reflexes, the ability to change direction efficiently, and the ability to make quick decisions with psychological resiliency. We work with the campers individually, in small groups, and in a large group settings with our credentialed, professional coaches. We help young people, no matter their sporting experience, feel successful in their sport participation.
The full-day camp also includes book-time, board-game time, creative time and free play. It is important to balance the hours of rigorous physical activity every day with opportunities for the campers to socialize with peers and further exercise their brains in a different way. Don't worry, we'll still send them home tuckered out, but happy!
