Athena Camp Summer 2024
Registration is now open for The Athena Summer Camp 2024! WFencing and Northwest Fencing Center (NWFC) are thrilled to announce a collaborative partnership with the creation of a one-of-a-kind women's and girl’s only fencing camp coming to Portland, Oregon August 11-17th.
The Athena Project’s mission is to develop and support young women leaders in fencing. All three Olympic-style weapons will be included. Project formation includes an amazing legacy of athletes and Coach Mentors: Sandra Marchant, Jennifer Oldham, Jennie Salmon, Tasia Ford, Susan Jennings, and Kat Holmes. Also part of the leadership core will be athletes in long-term development, Coach Mentees, critical to USA fencing’s growth. We will be welcoming special coaches, presenters and volunteers to be announced at a later date. We are expecting capacity for this camp to be over 100 athletes and future leaders.
In order to participate as a camper, you will need to be a competitive fencer, competing Regionally or above, aged 12 + and have the drive to excel in fencing. We will be creating a new path, modeling for the evolution of teamwork, collaboration, self-management, advocacy, and competition. Oh, did we mention positive mental health, boosted self-confidence, and empowering strategies for feeling fantastic about yourself? It's all part of the package!
