Summer Camp

COVID Update: 

Due to COVID, no more than 10 fencers will be allowed inside the studio at any given time. Parents/caretakers must drop-off/pick-up their fencers without entering the studio. No food will be allowed inside the studio. All fencers must bring their own water and water bottles (please label them). Those who do not own their own fencing equipment, please call before the first day so we can provide fencing gear that you can disinfect at home and use for the camp(s). The studio’s floors and high touch surfaces will be disinfected daily. Disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer will be provided for all to use. All OFS coaches will wear personal protective face masks. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. 

Beginner Summer Camp Program

Our summer camp program is designed for beginner fencers. We will focus on learning the fundamentals and rules of fencing as well as tactics and technique. Also, tests on reaction, intuition, and speed of thinking, all making for a fun and interesting camp experience!

The schedule will include: dynamic warm-up exercises, stretching, fencing, tests, a break for lunch, games, videos, and cool-down exercises. Children will develop coordination, improve flexibility, balance, agility, strength, and endurance. They will learn teamwork, and increase their discipline and focus . . . all while having fun!
