Our camps are fun, exciting, and fast paced! We are an inclusive community and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, religion, gender identity or sex. Fencing is a highly active & safe combat sport. Students will be learning this amazing Olympic-style sport from credentialed professionals – not teenagers! We do have Teen Leaders assisting the professional staff. If you are fencer looking to volunteer for a summer camp, please email Jeff@forgefencing.com

Not sure if your child is ready for fencing camp? Please feel welcome to visit our community, and take advantage of our 10 Day Trial membership. Learn to Fence camps do not require any previous fencing experience, and we provide all the gear. Students do need to be able to follow instructions, comply with safety prompts, and work well in small groups. Fencing camp requires a high level of positive engagement, cooperation, and resilience skills in learning new things.

Please note, these camps are physically active. Your child is going to experience potentially new movement patterns, muscle soreness, and feel challenged. The excitement of learning something new or connecting to a lifetime activity sport is rewarding and our community is extraordinary! Welcome to Summer 2024!
