We welcome children with no or some fencing experience.
Intermediate and advanced fencers will be tasked with advanced, high level developmental drills and exercises.

Fencing is an intriguing sport which includes physical, technical and mental aspects. As with any sport, if someone wants to be a champion, he or she has to commit and practice many hours. Nevertheless, our half-day camps will give the children an overall view about fencing, great learning experience and a fun week. All in an affordable way!

Atlantic Fencing Academy’s highly trained, successful coaches will introduce the three disciplines: foil, epee and saber. Children can try any or all to find their best suited one.
