“Camp is over! It’s been a great month with kids from all over the world, from small beginners to pro-level athletes who fence on the national teams of their countries, so you can find both sparring and a good friend for anyone. Daily training outdoors and indoors, personal lessons with different coaches, video reviews, food for every taste, a variety of activities such as rafting and hiking, and incredible nature among the mountains – that’s what a NYFA Sleep away camp is. We were glad to see everyone here and invite you to join us next year, there will be even more different, cool people and experiences!” – Coach Misha Mokretsov
