Summer 2020

What about Mid-South Fencers’ Club Summer 2020?

We are making smart preparations for a healthy season of camp. Part of that preparation is diligently following the developments around the coronavirus and the impacts our community is experiencing. As you can imagine, figuring out how to host summer camps as safely as possible has been a challenge amid the Covid-19 crisis. In order to do this best, Mid-South has partnered with Durham Academy for the month of July.

All Durham Academy registrations will be accepted through their online portal. Camp ages will be divided by the grade your child is entering. We apologize the full-day camps have been cancelled due to low enrollment.

The Durham Academy camp weekly price is $235 for a half day camp. Mid-South will include a fencing kit rental in the cost of the camp fee. You may also purchase beforehand your own kit for around $160 (we will provide information on this at a later time after registration).

Here is our current operational check list to keep us as safe as possible.
