Come learn the Olympic sport of fencing at St. Louis Fencing Center. We believe anyone can learn how to fence, and our camps are constructed for complete beginners to learn a new sport or for current fencers to hone their skills. No experience is necessary, equipment is provided, and we welcome all skill levels to join.
Fencing is an individual sport that allows children to learn confidence and how to take responsibility while engaging both the body and the mind. In addition to being an exciting physical activity, fencing requires strategy, planning, and decision making. Campers will be instructed in techniques for proper stretching, warm-up games, fencing footwork, fencing blocking, and fencing bouting. The week will culminate in a tournament on the last day of camp.
If your child is interested in pursuing a sport that can be both fun and competitive, reach out to reserve a spot at our camps today! Learn more at stlfencingcenter.com/fencingcamps
