We would like to say thank you to parents and fencers for participating in our last year Summer Camp at Westtown 2019. Everybody worked hard and we are sure that all fencers improved their skill and got ready for 2020-2021 competitive season. We proud to have many top world class Cadet and Junior fencers at the camp - such as Zoe Kim (USA), Simon Kushkov (USA), Sasha Bondar(Ukraine), John Lin (USA) and many others.
We are pleased to continue our camps at The Westtown School at West Chester, PA. Top world coaches will share their knowledge with our fencers!
Dining hall is in the same building as an air-conditioned dorm with two kids per room accommodation. Just come down to the first floor - and that's it. No walking back in forward (that means more time for meaningful activities). Gym - beautiful field house and additional full size basketball court, exercise room, swimming pool. Excellent outdoor facilities. All training facilities are just two minutes walking distance from the dorm. Food: School has it's own land where they grow everything necessary for balanced nutrition.
