    The Our Kids review of Knight Camp

    our take

    Kids dreaming of castles and dragons and knights, can have their dreams come true at a very unique and special camp. Knight Camp is the product of Director and Maestro d’Armi, Devon Boorman, who as a kid dreamed of this very thing. Knight Camp isn’t just fun and games—there are many skills to be mastered. Martial arts plays a huge piece and this includes swordplay, posture, and footwork. The week starts with a history of knighthood and why it’s important. It then moves to interacting with real swords and armour from their on-site museum, and then the real fun begins. Each day there is a tournament and the week ends with a grand finale, showing their families what they’ve learned. Kids take their knightly duties very seriously and keep the skills (leadership, service to others) and virtues (obedience, integrity, valour) they’ve learned for a lifetime. There isn’t another camp like this one and it has been voted as the best children’s camp.

  • What's New

    Director's Message

    Devon Boorman, Director and Maestro d’Armi

    When I was a kid I used to turn nearly any stick or tube into a pretend sword and then make up moves and have sword fights with my friends in the backyard. Knight Camp is the camp that I dreamed of as a kid. A place to learn real swordplay, history, and chivalry. Like Scouts or Guides but with knights! A special part of Knight Camp is that it channels the fantasies that so many boys and girls have of King Arthur, Wonder Woman, or Percy Jackson, and allows them to learn a martial art in a safe environment along with the arts, crafts, real history, and values that go along with them.

    Stories

    • Testimonials

      The qualities of Knighthood [taught in class] are an excellent touch, as it becomes more than just about the fighting.

    • Testimonials

      I found it very moving when the leaders spoke to the students and honoured their individual characters and virtues. I found the energy was positive, clear and focused in terms of structure, speaking and directing the presentation.

    • Testimonials

      My son went to Knight Camp three years ago and was instantly hooked. He still goes to Knight Camp a couple of times a year, takes youth swordplay lessons and attends each and every Open Floor. He loves the things he is learning and the sense of community and camaraderie he gets from Duello. I love the way his confidence has grown as he sees his strength, dexterity and skill continually improve through commitment and hard work. The instructors obviously love what they do and it shows.

    • Testimonials

      Such a wonderful camp. The kids are treated with respect and learn so much! Ryan and Finn made new friends and their confidence is soaring! Thank you!

    • Testimonials

      I liked the fact that I got to touch real weapons. I liked all the [instructors], especially Fraser. Knight Camp is the BEST camp I have ever been to. Seriously, swordplay is awesome!

    • Testimonials

      Our son simply loves being able to work with the weapons whilst learning the history. The classes and camps that our son has attended over the past year have helped him to grow and mature. He has focus and dedication as a result of his Knight Camp experience.
