Why Choose Our Fencing Summer Camp?

Learn from the Best: Our camp is led by experienced fencing instructors who are passionate about teaching and safety.

All Skill Levels Welcome: Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced fencer, our camp offers programs tailored to your skill level.

Build Confidence: Fencing is not just about physical agility; it’s also about mental focus and strategy. Our camp helps boost confidence and concentration in a supportive environment.

Stay Active: Say goodbye to boredom! Fencing is a dynamic sport that keeps campers engaged and active throughout the summer.

Make Friends: Campers will have the opportunity to connect with peers who share their passion for fencing, creating friendships that last beyond the summer.

For intermediate fencers, the camps will strengthen technique, improve conditioning, advance fencing skills, and deepen the understanding of the sport
We understand that the session needs to be fun and engaging for the kids.  This is why our exercises often combine the elements of games and activities that work on a specific set of muscles or necessary skills.  For example, sometimes our warm-up exercises will include a game of handball or dodgeball, which builds endurance, hones spatial relation capabilities, encourages team spirit, enhances hand-eye coordination, develops defensive strategies, and gets the camper used to assess a situation quickly and then reacting just as fast.  Other times, coaches will create a competitive game between fencers to practice their footwork – it can be physically challenging but the fencers don’t notice because they are so distracted by the fun of the game!

To make sure the kids are comfortable with the exercises and drills we do, we will continually assess each child during the camp to see what he/she can accomplish.  We want to give kids enough of a challenge that pushes them to work towards a new level, but not so hard that they become discouraged.  Neither do we want to exhaust the kids to the point that they do not have the energy to continue the next day.  The coach will maintain the delicate balance that gives kids just the right amount of training to stimulate and challenge – yet still have the desire to learn more the next day.

At the end of the camp, there will be a friendly fencing competition among fellow campers.  This is not a formal competition, it will be held in the spirit of fun and learning.

At Pembroke Fencing Summer Sessions, your kids will enjoy a full day of learning and fun.
