“Fencing Adventure” Summer Camps at  La Jolla Fencing Academy

En Garde! Your Summer of Fun with Swords Awaits!

Summertime is for exploration, discoveries, and making memories that will last a lifetime. That’s why at LJFA we believe that summer sport camps should be fun and exciting. During the 5-day fencing camp kids will learn the basics of this Olympic sport through games, fun activities and bouting at Southern California's premier fencing facility. Students will learn the basics of fencing through our fun and structured system of youth development which includes building students confidence, teamwork, coordination, balance, and hone their fine motor skills as they learn our winning fencing habits and moves; as well as fencing etiquette, rules, and sportsmanship (fencing is a noble sport after all). The code of chivalry and the modern Olympic values of friendship, respect, and excellence will be emphasized.

Regardless of one’s physical abilities or athletic prowess, the sport of fencing is beneficial to all!

What to Bring:

  • A healthy bagged lunch and snack
  • Bottled water
  • T-shirt to change
  • Must wear t-shirts, sweat pants, indoor NON-MARKING athletic sneakers
