Summer Fencing Camp
June 10 @ 10:00 am - June 13 @ 2:00 pm$100
This exciting 4-day Chicago area fencing camp is offered by the championship winning Libertyville and Vernon Hills High School Fencing Team. If you would like to fence in high school, this is a perfect way to give fencing a try or build your skills.
Each day starts with fun games to get warmed up. The games are followed by footwork drills, blade work drills, agility training, stamina training, lots of fencing bouts (both dry and electric) and end with more games to cool down.
Coach Mikhail Tsipis will be assisted by advanced fencers in epee, sabre and foil. Fencers will be broken into groups based on weapon and experience so each fencer will receive lots of individualized instruction. New fencers will have an opportunity to try epee, foil and sabre to see which weapon they like best.
– The camp is open to anyone, ages 8 to 18
– This camp is suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced fencers
– Fencing equipment will be provided if needed, or bring your own if you have it
– Please bring a bag lunch and a water bottle each day
