Our camps focus on the core foundations of fencing, including coordination, agility, and stance for all ages and abilities. Our accredited coaches are dedicated to providing a supportive, inspiring and fun atmosphere to foster a love of the sport and the growth of the athlete, both on the strip and off. 

Membership is not required to enroll in a Camp. 

December 27 – 31

We are so excited to announce Foil & Epee Winter Camp! Join us for 5 full days of training with the NWFC coaching staff and guests: Cody Mattern and Sebastien Dos Santos. Plus, we are excited to welcome back two of our own from the Ohio State fencing team, Henry Lange & Justin Vogler and Rose Parker & Olivia Barnes from the Vassar fencing team! Saturday, attendees can compete in the New Years Open Tournament (sign up on AskFred), to compete for a 2022 rating!  

The camp’s emphasis will be on bouting and tactical awareness. Fencing activities include organized bouting, tactical drills, video review & observation, group feedback, and team bouting. 

This camp is ideal for the committed fencer with experience from our Youth Intermediate classes and up. If you are not sure if the camp is for you, ask your coach.

Health & Safety Protocols:

  • All participants and staff must present either a covid-19 vaccination card documenting full vaccination 2 weeks prior to camp or a negative PCR covid test not more than 72 hours old.
  • The camp runs longer than 72 hours. We will therefore require another test for unvaccinated individuals Thursday morning of camp. We will not require a PCR test for the second test, a quick test will be sufficient, and we will supply those test kits.
  • If anyone tests positive we will retest to make sure the test was accurate.  If the test is still positive, then all unvaccinated persons will be asked to leave and recommended to quarantine for 14 days.
