About this Camp

Knight Camp
 

Welcome to the only authentic knight school for youth (ages 8 – 14) in Canada, where knightly skills are taught in a safe and engaging environment by Academie Duello’s trained instructors. Knight Camp has been voted “The Best Children’s Camp” by the Georgia Straight. Since 2008 we have had more than 1000 children participate in Knight Camp.

The five-day camp curriculum is focused on the skills of becoming of a knight – from martial arts of the longsword and sword and shield – to the practice of knightly virtues such as courage and integrity. Students at Knight Camp learn about history, leadership, heraldry, archery, medieval games and more.


The 2020 Experience at Knight Camp

We are working hard to adapt our camps to the new health and safety concerns presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The health of your children and our staff are our top priority. With that in mind we are confident we can run some great camps while modifying our programs for social distancing and small numbers to align with provincial health advice.

We understand that the changing state of the health environment from week to week can make it difficult to make concrete plans. To make things easier this year we’re offering free advanced reservation for our camps.

We are planning to run camps every week in July and August, beginning on July 6th and ending with the week of August 24th.

You can reserve spots for your children through our regular online registration here: https://www.academieduello.com/youth/knight-camp-youth-swordplay/ . Act now to secure a spot as spaces are extremely limited.

To reserve a spot, simply purchase a $0 registration in our regular system. We will reach out to you two weeks before the camp date to collect payment. If the camp or your attendance needs to be cancelled for health and safety reasons there will be no charge to you. If you have a gift certificate or credit on account it can be applied at this time. We will also allow you to add options such as before- and after-care to your booking.

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.
