Choose Between Two Options
- $99 for a one-week half-day fencing and sports camp with equipment rental at the Regency Green Drive location (a $205 value)
- $199 for a one-week full-day fencing and sports camp with equipment rental at the Bellfort Avenue location (a $415 value)
Both camps take place Monday–Friday. Half days run 9:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. and full days run 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m. Within air-conditioned facilities, instructors group students 7–18 years old by age and skill level and teach them the fundamentals of using a foil in mock combat. They may also introduce other sports, such as flag football and floor hockey, or host movie viewings. Students can put their newfound skills to use during a mini tournament.
Bayou City Fencing Academy
Overseen by head instructor Delfina Perka, the experienced coaches at both Bayou City Fencing Academy locations teach fencers of all skill levels to lunge and parry like the swordsmen of old. A master fencer with the United States Fencing Association, Delfina hails from Poland and represented the country at the 1980 Olympic Games. Today, she grooms her students to strive for the same level of success, helping them improve quickness, endurance, and the mental agility required to remember victory speeches from The Three Musketeers.
