The camps will take place in June, July, and August 2011, covering all three of the sport's weapons: foil, epee and saber. In addition to its athletic camps, DFC also offers separate theatrical fencing programs. Beginners are welcome.
"Our camps are the perfect way to introduce a beginner to the sport or take your fencing up the the next level," commented Nathan Anderson, head coach. "Every year of the summer camp, we have taken one beginner fencer and turned them into a top 20 National ranked fencer or National medalist by the next summer.
We have been doing this for 7 years and have create over 1,000 successful fencers through our camps, and had a tremendous amount of fun."
