Camp Descriptions & Information
- UNIQUE CAMP SYSTEM: We offer half-day camps that you can take or combine to make a full-day combo-camps! The camp Head Coach puts the kids into different age. For half-day archery & fencing camps ages are 6-16. Other camps are 9-16.
- THE STAFF: Each camp is directed by master level coaches and instructors. They are professionals (not students). They are assisted by interns from the CSC Coach’s College & Junior Mentorship Program in archery, fencing, horsemanship, and even fly fishing. Our camps are also unique as we invite and hire many guest lecturers, educators, and specialists to visit and educate our campers.
