Starry Sky

Laser Saber & Fencing Camp

Ages 9 - 14
Unleash the power within.....


Dark side or light side?
Musketeer or Warrior?

No matter which side you choose, this camp will teach you all the basics of fighting with a sword - be it an epee, foil, saber or laser saber.  The soon-to-be masters  will work in teams  to learn the moves, techniques, and strategies of true sword fighters. Campers will learn the Olympic style of fencing in all three disciplines (Foil, Epee and Saber) as well as the fundamental forms of the Laser Saber. In addition to learning  the fine art of Olympic fencing and laser saber fighting, campers will be challenged to solve missions, puzzles, and problems using the force for the greater good of the team.

And did we mention, you get to battle with laser sabers!
