2019 Beginner Summer Fencing Camps

Youth (7-10 years old) and Cadet (11-15 years old) Camps

Emerald City Fencing Club will have 7 weeks of beginner fencing camps in 2019. Each week, we will offer youth camps in the morning (9 am - 12 pm) and cadet camps in the afternoon (1 pm - 4pm) at our brand new Northgate facility.

No experience is necessary! Each camp session will include the fundamentals of fencing footwork and bladework. We will cover safety, etiquette, attacking, defense, and have students fencing real bouts in just 1 week.

Each camp session will be only $199.99 and all of the equipment will be provided!
