Top of the Lake Veteran’s Training Camp

This 2-day, 3-weapon, training camp is conveniently located in Kingston, Ontario, a short drive from many urban centres in Canada and the USA. Fencers at all levels of experience are welcome, and it is a great tune-up opportunity before the April USFA NAC in St. Louis, and the Canadian Nationals and Can-Am tournament in May. Training is comprehensive and includes free/directed/team bouting, footwork/bladework drills, and structured warm up/recovery sessions.

Spend a weekend with fellow veterans (and pre-veterans) training in an adult-oriented camp at the spacious Royal Military College (RMC), and enjoy a social evening at Chez Piggy, a top-rated local restaurant. Lunch is included both days, and for fun, enjoy light-sabre fencing!


$150 per person for the weekend or $90 per day



The Delta, Holiday Inn, and the Sheraton are all located downtown with lots of amenities close by and five minutes from RMC.
