Beginner Summer Fencing Camps

Summer Camp dates are here and on! YAY!

Empower your child to be active and engaged as they unleash their inner swashbuckler, musketeer, jedi knight or hero!

Fencing teaches focus, listening, persistence, agility, co-ordination, self-confidence, problem solving, poise, and a host of other wonderful life skills. Camps are a great way to introduce children to the Olympic sport of saber fencing. Your child will hold a sword on the first day as they learn the basics safety, defense, and offense.  

We offer several camps throughout the year in our Beaverton Club and at the City of Hillsboro Parks and Recreations Centers.

Learn from professional coaches of renowned PDX Fencing, in a fun, friendly environment.  Camp size is limited.  Safety guidelines are strictly followed. We want our fencers, staff and families are safe.

Fencing (especially saber – which is what we teach) is a non-body contact sport, with distance between the fencers for the majority of the time.  You don’t want to be close enough to have someone hit you with a sword! Uniforms include a glove, safety jackets and fencing masks.
