The WAY Academy Combo Camp
This year we have two different camp locations as well as a sleep away option:
Ridgefield CT @ WAY (beginner to intermediate level)
Saddlebrook NJ @ DFA (advanced level).
Locally at WAY in Ridgefield CT we are offering a fun and engaging combination of Team USA fencing, archery, and chess! Our weekly camp sessions are a great WAY for beginner to intermediate levels ages 7 + to train like Olympians.
Every day, students will receive an age-appropriate conditioning regime, combined with balance, and hand-eye coordination skills plus formal lessons in fencing, archery, and chess. In addition, your child will learn to "parlez-vous" from a surprise guest who'll teach French, the language of escrime.
Our curriculum is progressive and designed to meet kids where they're at, from beginner to intermediate levels. Our methodology makes kids better, stronger, and more confident. We focus on achieving incremental improvements by leveraging current skills and developing new ones.
Want to get a first-hand look at our program in action before making a commitment? We are open all year long, so visit us, take a tour, meet our coaches, and witness our programs in action! See our daily schedule for the exact list of activities on which days of the week.
Want to attend fencing at night or on the weekend. We have that available too. Learn more...
