Participants use foils with plastic round tips on the end and are completely protected with special body suits and facemasks. They duel a partner in a designated arena complete with judge and officials.
Competitors score points by making contact with the point of their foil on an opponent’s chest plate or if you force an opponent out of the arena. Apart from the fascinating history of fencing, the sport teaches speed, agility and tactical thinking. It also helps to develop lightning fast reflexes and fitness.

This camp is amazing. We had an awesome time, stress free and at all times knew what was happening. Kids are thoroughly happy, challenged and exhausted.
The students enjoyed all the activities. Crossroads session was very informative, the content was relevant and the presenters were very engaging. The service for students as well as teachers was wonderful. I will highly recommend this to anyone.
The genuine consistency and commitment of all staff in every role and responsibility that each individual undertook.
All the staff were very accommodating and went out of their way to support teachers & students - chefs & cleaning staff included. Thank you for spare sleeping bags. The GABC team went out of their way to build rapport with kids, always a checking in on staff, the instructors for all activities were great and adjustments to weather fabulous.
The message at each activity, to engage students to transfer skills to individual/ dynamic home and school environments. Relaxing serene natural environment. Individual attention to each student/ staff needs EG: dietary organisation, attention to detail. Talking about focus, team work, and different strategies and directing these life skills back to the classroom was excellent. When some kids failed their first attempt the instructors gave them a second chance and made them feel worthwhile & special. They encouraged persistence and resilience.
Friendly, helpful staff who can confidently lead the students push the students to achieve their best & also provide a fun experience.
We all had a wonderful time. Faultless organisation and the staff were just outstanding. All activities were exciting and engaging for students and teachers. We had a ball. The teachers are treated like royalty and the overall enthusiasm & professionalism of staff was second to none.
The way teachers are looked after and the way the instructors bonded with the kids and learnt all their names so quickly.
Thank you for yet another great experience for our students and staff. All instructors were amazing in building positive relationships with students in such a short time, thus allowing our students to develop and take risks on camp ! We love the diversity of activities offered and treatment & support of teachers whilst at camp.
There was a great atmosphere leading in and everything was relaxed but well organised. The activities were excellent, challenging and varied.
This is a fantastic camp for both teachers and kids. The team building & challenges set were awesome!! Could not recommend GABC any higher. We LOVED it !!!! Hands on instructors establish a great rapport with our kids with fantastic support & care of teachers & students.
Thank you so much for an amazing camp. We love coming here. We really love that the instructors spend time talking about the social / emotional skills (comfort zone, teamwork, overcoming fears, etc) as well as the physical skills with the activities.
The activities were all linked to life & the classroom. The kids were involved in character building, development of self-esteem, team participation, learning to encourage others, focus and challenging themselves - all while having the best fun in the world.
