Summer Camps 2019

BestOfBoston

Keep active, learn something new and have fun all summer long!

Competitive fencing is one of the fastest-growing sports in North America, and, as witnessed by the sound of weapons clanging and people of all ages, lunging and parrying in our studio – Cambridge just might be the next home to a future Olympic champion!

Olympia Fencing Center coaches consists of world-class fencing masters and professional educators, CORI and Safe Sport certified.
We make learning fencing fun and enjoyable, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Our fencing camps are geared toward children ages 8-12, with little or no fencing experience, of all body types and athletic levels.

The day starts with getting to know each other, warming up with fun games or a stroll to the beautiful Fresh Pond, weather permitting.
Lunch break will follow at 11:30 AM, during which time we’ll run fencing related movies on our big screen TV: Zorro, The Princess Bride, etc.
The rest of the camp day will consist of fencing basics: correct stances, lunges and parries, the rules, the electrical scoring system, bouting and round robin.

The camp week concludes with a fencing tournament, medals will be awarded and pizza party will end the day.
