Awesome & Unique
We would like to explain a little about how our camps originated and why we have such a huge passion for offering and leading them every summer since 1984.
Daniel Tibbetts is the Founder and Director of the Cal Sports Club which embodies a few of his life’s passions; Fencing, Archery, Horses, and Nature. He has developed 4 distinct business divisions that operate as complete programs including awesome summer and seasonal camps for kids. You can do all-day one activity camps (such as developmental horse camps), to half-day camps (like our morning archery camps) or combine two half-day camps to make a full-day camp (such as archery in the morning and fencing in the afternoon.
Cal Sports Club Divisions Offering Camps:
- California Fencing Academy
- California Archery Center
- California Natural Horsemanship/Tibbetts Equestrian Adventures
- California Outdoor Adventures.
Daniel has been putting on camps, clinics, and outings for the Los-Gatos Saratoga Recreation and other city programs such as Saratoga City, Campbell, Milpitas and others since 1984. For Fencing Daniel Tibbetts is a certified in both the Italian and French schools of fencing as a Italian Provost-At-Arms, and a French Maitre D’Armes or Fencing Master with a rare 3-weapon diploma as a master in all three swords, and he has produced National Champions, US World Team Members, and World Championship medalists. As far as Archery he grew up shooting from a young age in forests behind his property, and again as a teen-adult mostly on the trail out in nature or from the back of a horse. Dan’s passion for Horses led him to Pat Parelli Natural Horsemanship which changed his horse life. Dan loves teaching people about horses and how to have a meaningful respectful relationship with horses by understanding their nature. He incorporates his love of nature and Outdoor adventures into all his programs. He has been an avid outdoorsman all his life and became an educator and Environmental Interpreter for Parks and the Forest Service, and the West Valley Park Management program while managing Seirra campgrounds. He was also a Personal Trainer and Sport Therapist who owned the Optimum Health Center and The Competitive Edge (Soft tissue sports injury rehab and personal training for children) which were right across from Los Gatos High School. Dan Tibbetts has taken his life’s worth of teaching experience and his passion for fencing, archery, horses, and the great outdoors and turned them into awesome and completely unique camps for kids!
