Fencing combines mental and physical agility in a fast mental game of swordplay on a 6-by-120-foot strip. It's about anticipating what your opponent will do, provoking them to move in ways you want them to, and, ultimately, out-thinking them to score touches and win the competition.

This summer, Fencing Academy of Denver is offering two individual half-day camps: Fencing Camps and Jedi Training. Families can combine Fencing Camp with Jedi Training to create a full-day experience.

Through individual and team participation, fencers ages 7 to 18 learn to solve problems and cope with adversity gracefully. It is one of the few sports that evens the playing field between size, age, and gender.

Fencing is a mental and physical sport that teaches competition, respect, and self-discipline in a safe and fun environment.

Fencing Camp

This camp is designed for participants of all skill levels.

Beginner fencers will learn the history of fencing, footwork, and blade work (parries and ripostes).

Our outstanding, experienced coaches will provide level-appropriate instruction for progressive and intermediate fencers.

Jedi Camp

Long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, the Jedi Knights protected the innocent from evildoers. Now is your child's time to join the Jedi ranks and become a hero! 

Participants will learn how to train their minds and bodies to become the greatest heroes of all time. Jedi trainees will learn how to wield a lightsaber, fight off evil Sith warriors, and save the universe!

At this camp, your child will learn how to use the lightsabers in theatrical fighting, participate in strength and agility training using various exercises and games, learn Jedi lore and history, and have fun.
