$650 for the week.

Daily from 9:00am-3:00pm
Lunch is daily around noon. There are several restaurants in easy walking distance of the club. Any fencer eligible to fence in a youth event (-10, -12, -14) needs to bring a permission slip from their parent or guardian to leave the facility for lunch. Youth fencers will still need to travel with older fencers to go to local restaurants. Fencers should bring their own food and drinks if they don't wish to leave at lunch.
The camp will cover both basic and advanced tactics for fencers. Additionally, time will be spent on mental preparation, nutrition, physical training tips, and footwork and bladework drills.
Extensive electrical fencing will be done daily, so fencers need to be sure to bring at least 2 working sets daily. An armorer will be available for hire should fencers need equipment repaired.
Preregistration closes on May 22, 2013.
