Chivalry Today has developed our Summer Warrior Camp program to help children explore their natural curiosity about images and tales of heroic warriors of the past. During this week long camp children and teens learn about, and practice the battle-skills of the historic warriors they may have seen in movies, TV shows, books, or video games – warriors like the medieval knight, the Norman, and English archers!
Our immersive, adventure camp-style activities provide children with a variety of benefits:
For every youngster who has used a trash can lid as a shield, a broomstick as a lance, or a piece of plastic kitchenware as a helmet (and, yes, Chivalry Today’s instructors have done all of those things when we were young) Warrior Camp brings the image of a heroic warrior to life.
Campers meet and interact with modern warrior guest speakers while learning about how the code of chivalry applies to modern day warriors in a special interactive presentation designed to encourage critical thinking skills.
Young warriors get to see armored knights in action, try on real historically accurate armor replicas, and handle weapons (while closely supervised) as they prepare to learn historically accurate combat techniques that will be applied in later camp activities -with foam weapons of course!
Teamwork, action, and fun rule the day as young warriors put their skills to use on the battlefield in a variety of challenging melee scenarios. These team games emphasize good sportsmanship, fair play, and respectful competition - along with providing lots of energy-burning exercise for youngsters.
