We offer two types of camps through the Santa Rosa Recreation and Parks Department, both of which are tremendous fun. For the Santa Rosa camps, we offer morning and afternoon sessions, with a one hour supervised lunch break in between. Kids can bring a lunch and snacks and stay the whole day, from 9AM to 3PM, or pick one of the two to participate in. Check out the descriptions below!
For hundreds of years fencing has captured the imagination of generation after generation of young people. Who hasn’t imagined themselves with sword in hand, fending off hordes of enemies with a quick and daring blade?
Fencing teaches kids about honor and the value of seeking challenges while they develop coordination, balance, grace and athletic ability. In our camps, even as they play games and exercise, kids grow in strength and skill, which yields confidence, determination and self-discipline. At EGF, we believe that mental and physical development through carefully guided training is key to creating a healthy and balanced life.
En Garde Fencing offers numerous camps during the year, both through the club and through local community centers. Our camps are an excellent and affordable introduction to the exciting sport of fencing.
At Fencing Adventure Camp, students learn the rules of the sport, the amazing history of fencing, and play games that help develop skills learned during footwork and drills. Camps are designed with the beginning fencer in mind, so no prior experience is necessary to fully enjoy them. Fencers ages 7-12 years old are welcome to attend. Equipment is provided free of charge. Bring a bag lunch and dress in tennis shoes and shorts or sweats.
The EGF Sword and Gaming Camp is one week of daring role-playing adventure, epic battles, and the finest training in the kingdom of the noble art of sword and shield. Truly the best of both worlds! Young squires ages 7-12 years old learn the basics of movement and train for battle with their trusty foam sword, while also running through adventures in fun role playing games. As they progress in skill throughout the week, they learn the use of the shield and other foam weaponry while playing games and engaging in epic quests and battles. Don't miss out on this unique and memorable summer camp! Join the fun today. Equipment is provided free of charge. Bring a bag lunch and dress in tennis shoes and shorts or sweats.
