Hey guys one of the reasons I joined the forum was so I cold ask you guys if you knew of any fencing camps (épée) for 14 year olds during the summer in Spain, France (not nouvelle) or Hungary. Thanks. :)
P.s. I don't mind other countries it's just I speak French and Spanish and am trying to learn Hungarian.

Wide range, up to top European cadets & juniors + a few Americans - typical age around 15 - 16 with a few adults as well.
A big camp with over 500 fencers - seems to be something for everyone.

you can take the core coaching and sparring but there are also many individual coaches who will provide as many 1-to-1 lessons as you want (paid extra). Several top coaches are there

Be prepared for VERY basic pre1970s style hostel accommodation and the least nutritionally balanced diet ever experienced, but the fencing is great for that age group.

I would not recommend sending a youngster on their own. If that is what you want then I would go for one of the camps run by Team Melia or Salle Kiss which are also in Hungary but run by British based clubs and have mostly British and Hungarian fencers.

The overall cost for the fencers is more but for Szombathely you really need to have an adult present in my opinion and so the total cost does up.
