About the Host

Welcome to the only authentic knight school for youth (ages 8 – 14) in Canada where knightly skills are taught in an engaging and safe environment by Academie Duello trained instructors. Knight Camp has been voted “The Best Children Camp” by Georgia Straight and takes place at our beautiful 5,000 square foot facility in Downtown Vancouver. We’ve been now operating 11 years straight and we have taught over 1000 children over that period.

Highlights

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.

Everyone uses properly weighted and balanced synthetic swords that give the authentic feel of the real thing – while staying safe and easy to manage. Students will also get the opportunity to interact with real swords and armor as well as create their own shield. At the end-of-week finale, each student will graduate to their next rank.
