Summer Camps

Every summer, the Academy hosts day programs for youth to continue their instruction in fencing, as well as stay in shape during the summer. As the camps are hosted by Sebastiani's best instructors, parents and fencers can be confident knowing that they are still receiving the same world-class training as they would during the regular fencing season. 

Make memories and practice the celebrated sport of fencing all at the same time! See session details below and sign up today!

For Beginners

Has your child been wanting to try a new sport, or have they recently started fencing only to find that the training season has ended? Fear not! Whatever your case may be, the Academy's summer camps offer the solution. The camps are organized as week-long, training experiences that provide structure and fun, all while helping newer students develop their fencing skills and athleticism alike.


For Competitive Fencers

For the more experienced fencer, the Academy's camps offer rigorous drills and intense instruction in order to keep skills fresh in the offseason, all while maintaining an upbeat environment, so that progression to more advanced levels of the sport can be attained in a fun and motivating atmosphere. We've organized designated high-level training weeks to ensure these students get the best summer fencing instruction possible.

Camp Details

All gear will be provided to attendees who do not own any, and is there's to take home and maintain until the end of their session. Snacks and refreshments are provided, but students are expected to bring a more substantial lunch as well. Aftercare is available upon request.
