Although fencing its a fun sport already, we strive to make it even funnier, in summertime. For a total of four consecutive weeks, our summer camps are strategically formulated for age groups and fencing skills, combining training and conditioning with fencing workshops and games.

Our fencing camps welcome boys and girls ages 6 to 18, of any fencing levels.

Thrust and lunge your way to fitness, while improving your posture, problem solving skills, eye/hand coordination and sharpen your mind!

Every Friday we are running a weekly tournament to show off what you learned, followed by a pizza party where everyone can exchange email addresses, plan future visits, sign up for other events /offers at Olympia Fencing Center. Every child brings home a t shirt and lots of fun memories.
