Beginner Camps

Summertime is for exploration, discoveries, and making memories that last a lifetime. That’s why at AFM we believe that summer sports camps should be fun and exciting. Our Bay Area fencing summer camp for beginners combines the mastery of our professional coaches with experiences that spark the imagination and introduce children to the joy of physical activity.

We strongly believe that sports should both provide enjoyment and instill core values like courage and self-discipline. We will certainly challenge your children with intensive workouts, but we guarantee that they will have fun along the way and learn to appreciate the hard work. Our summer beginner fencing camp is a small window into what we do at AFM year-round, and we welcome new students with open arms and a passion to introduce them to our world.

Located in the historical downtown of Campbell, California, we serve San Jose and other cities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our facility is near Campbell Park and we make sure to utilize the outdoors during our camps because children should be outside when the weather is nice!

So what can you expect for your child at our summer camp? The new fencer will learn proper fencing form and technique; basic fencing skills including footwork, blade work, and distance control; fencing with electrical equipment (always exciting for fencers!); as well as fencing etiquette, rules, and sportsmanship (fencing is a noble sport after all). After graduating from camp with a certificate in hand, campers are eligible to attend our intermediate fencing class. But most important – they will have a lot of fun, learn a lot, fence a lot, make friends and have a livelong memories of fantastic summer activity!
