The activities are tailored to assess the individual camper's ability to process the information, improve on previously acquired techniques and establish new ones. Progress is made according to the individual's day to day results. Each of the three daily sessions provides campers with lessons in fencing theory, tactical/technical drills, group lessons, competitions and team events. The practice sessions are conducted with electronic scoring equipment. Between the daily sessions, activities such as soccer, basketball, swimming and running are planned. Also planned is movie night on Wednesday of that week.
