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.
Each day begins with a warm-up and a discussion of Knightly Virtues. Students then learn a variety of the martial skills that the knights of old had to know: Wrestling, swordplay, and staff. During lunch, students learn and play a variety of medieval games. After lunch, students divide into groups for academic lessons on subjects ranging from heraldry to the history of the sword to armour-making, and more! The day wraps up with more martial arts lessons as well as sparring (controlled practice swordfights, with protective equipment) and the virtue circle, where the students and instructors nominate each other for their virtuous behaviour throughout the day.
