Summer Fencing Camps

Summer Camp dates are here and on! YAY! Safety guidelines to keep participants and staff safe are strictly followed.

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, offense, and good sportsmanship.  

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