Summer Camp

Make the best of your summer, close to the heart of the city!

Ten minutes drive from downtown Boston, located in the beautiful Fresh Pond of  Cambridge, Olympia Fencing Center is opening its doors, every summer, to all fencing aficionados.

Our Fencing Camp for beginners became increasingly popular over the years, offering daily options and a decent price.

Be cooler than your friends – skip the soccer camp and do something different this summer: grab a sword, be Darth Vader, Zorro or Inigo Montoya, stab your friends and camp1unleash your imagination!

 Our summer camps are strategically formulated for age groups and fencing skills, combining training and conditioning with fencing workshops and games.

Boys and girls, ages 6 to 18, of any fencing levels, are welcome to sign up and get ready to thrust and lunge your way to fitness, while improving your posture, problem solving skills, eye/hand coordination and sharpen your mind!

Every child brings home a t shirt and lots of fun memories.
