Enroll: In-Person Series Classes
Hands-on skills from the past! The more the world is driven by technology, the more kids need the physical and social engagement of pre-industrial arts. Wake up your imagination and try out something new that just might give you a springboard to a lifetime of discovery!
All our programs are designed to let young people enjoy each other's company in small groups, connect socially around shared curiosity, and gain a unique perspective on their individual strengths and personalities.

Guest appearances by Maître d'Armes Cecil Longino have been a favorite part of many SHAK camps for more than a decade. Now we have special classes with this instructor devoted entirely to historical fencing, discovering both the thrill of action and the dignity of etiquette and posture that are encoded in this noble art.
