Fencing summer camps at NCF will introduce your child to the core skills, strategies and rules of the modern sport of fencing. Camps are safe and fun, and participants learn the basics of using a fencing weapon for offense and defense, the rules of the sport, how to conduct bouts and tournament play, and how to be gracious in victory and how to profit from defeat. Along the way, we’ll have fun games, challenging exercises and bouts with partners, and informative discussions about the sport and each fencer’s role in it.
