Youth Epee Camp
This summer, Hooked on Fencing is offering our first ever Youth Camp! This camp is open to all fencers ages 10-12 (or younger with coach's permission). We will seek to develop fitness, fencing skills, and strategic thinking through a variety of games, drills, and, of course, fencing! The five day camp will be every morning from 9:30am 'til 12:30pm the week of July 11-15.
You can expect to have fun and learn new skills in the best fencing facility in Northern Ohio. Fencers will be instructed by experienced coaches whose students have won a variety of national medals and titles, with some assistance from a few of our nationally ranked Junior fencers. Our goal is that every fencer who attends this camp will leave more knowledgeable and more excited about the sport of fencing!.
This camp is intended for young fencers who already have a grip on the basics of fencing (not for first-time fencers). Participants should bring a water bottle, and wear long pants and athletic shoes. The cost for the whole week is $100, or $30 for an individual day of the camp.
The five day camp will be every morning from 9:30am 'til 12:30pm the week of July 11-15.
