Campers will learn about fencing through games, drills, and bouting. They'll play other games, too - some to build general athleticism, some simply for fun. Off-strip activities will include video analysis of their own fencing and that of international fencing stars, and other activities, like board games, to build strategic thinking and friendships. Overall, each week will be a great chance to learn more about fencing and make new friends.
Students should wear comfortable athletic clothing and sneakers. In addition to wearing shorts for class, beginners will need to bring long pants and advanced fencers will need knickers. Bring lunch, snacks, and a water bottle. All further equipment is provided by DVFC.
