About Camp

2-4-1 Fencing is a low cost, low barrier to entry introduction to an Olympic sport that kids absolutely love.  But, because Fencing is often so cost-prohibitive or not readily available, we have created a model that allows children to learn the sport at less than 2 percent of what the normal cost would be.

2-4-1 Fencing – Active City will take place on Saturday mornings from 9am-10am at Breakthrough Magnet School in Hartford, CT and is free to all attendees.

This program is designed to introduce athletes to the sport using foam “noodles” and optional safety goggles.  While the rules have been simplified, all the skills developed in 2-4-1 Fencing translate directly to Olympic style fencing.  Our play-based curriculum is written and delivered in such a way that students toggle between skill-acquisition and games/challenges/competitions that are developmentally appropriate and keep the “fun-factor” up.

2-4-1 Fencing level 1 is a point based curriculum, meaning that the point — or end of the noodle — will be used to score.  The target area that is worked on is the torso.  Hits that are not made on the torso will be ignored and play will continue as though they did not land.

Most of all, 2-4-1 Fencing is intended to be fun, engaging and an entry to a lifelong pursuit of this wonderful sport.


2-4-1 Fencing – Active City is only open to Hartford Residents, but free to all participants due to a generous grant from Active City, Hartford.  Donations to help support and grow the program are welcome.  Contributions can be made by Venmo (@Care241) or by clicking HERE

Sample Schedule

Each weekly session will include a combination of individual skills, group activities and play based games.

Attendees will be able to fence against a partner by the end of the program and know how to keep score while doing so.
