AT A GLANCE

WHAT IS INCLUDED

At $1590.00, the camp includes fencing training, all lunches, afternoon recreational trips, scheduled wine tastings, two dinners, as well as transportation to and from these venues. 

Non-fencers who wish to join are most welcomed to do so at a cost of $990.00. We have at times arranged for side activities like a cooking class for non-fencers, though the probability of which is dependent on the location of the camp.

 

WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED

Airfare and accommodation is not included.
However, we will provide hotel recommendations and make all the necessary bookings for you upon receiving your travel dates. 

Venue recommendations will also be provided on evenings where there isn't an included dinner.
