No Comments

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s NYFA Summer Sleep-Away Epee Camps! It was great to come back to another successful and memorable summer fencing experience, despite the challenges of the pandemic. We couldn’t have done it without the cooperation and teamwork of our campers, parents, and staff!

Big thanks to our fantastic camp coaches: Anton Dutchak, Misha Mokretsov, Sergey Danilov, Yarik Ponomarenko, Alexei Sintchinov (Penn State University), Slava Danilov (University of Pennsylvania), and Misha Mazur (Ohio State University).

We welcomed athletes from Hong Kong, Argentina, Sweden, Mexico, Canada, Bulgaria, and across the USA. Campers got to train alongside top fencers including Valentin Matveev, Silver World Championships Medalist in Juniors; Skyler Liverant, Bronze World Championships Medalist in Cadets; and Jaclyn Khrol, top 8 World Championships finisher in Juniors.
