Medieval Camp

Come lads and ladies to Medieval Camp! Over the course of the week, the Knights of DFC will guide you on your quest to learn the art of the sword.

Knights-in-training will learn to battle both in the medieval style and the modern Olympic style.

Knights will make their own foam swords and will design their personal crests, which they will paint on their shield. On our last day, our knights will battle for the castle built upon the great Ruby Hill!

 

US Fencing Nationals Training Camp

The 2019 Summer National Championships are in Columbus, OH.

If you're gearing up to compete against the nation's best fencers, come train hard at this camp. We will focus on building strength and stamina through footwork drills, calisthenics, and hill runs at Ruby Hill Park. We will also refine technique with drills and lessons. Fencers will have ample opportunity to get in lots of practice bouts before Nationals!

This is a 3 weapon camp to prepare fencers for Nationals or other high level competitions.
