A Pirates Life for Me!

Monday through Friday
9:00 a.m - 12:00 p.m

Boys and Girls ages 6 - 8 as of June 1, 2020
What should I expect as a young sprog?
Pirates camp is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the sport of fencing.  During our short day we will play games with a pirate twist, learn to fence sabre, and treasure hunt around campus.

Should I bring my own grub?
YES! We captains eat moldy hardtack, seawater, limes, and salted (mostly un-rotten) pork. Unless you want to join us, pirates should bring a snack.

Can I wear my finest pirate threads to camp?
But, please keep a few things in mind!

  • We are very active during the day, and pirates need to wear clothes that that they can wear comfortably through out a busy day. Wear comfortable closed toed athletic shoes. Although a pair of authentic patent leather boots may look AWESOME, your pirates feet won't feel awesome.
  • Please dress in clothes that you won't mind getting dirty. Personal Hygiene isn't our pirate’s strong suit.
  • Please wear/bring things that are safe. Please no swords, knives, or guns. Common sense is a good rule of thumb.
  • Please don't bring anything that you aren't willing to lose. In a sea of hooks, eye patches, bandannas and earrings; it's very possible that it might be mistakenly taken by another pirate. We are pirates after all.

Emergencies and Medical 

My pirate has a medical condition, requires medication or has special needs. What do I do?
We have dealt with many different pirates with special needs over the years and have developed a system that works well for everyone. First, you should indicate any and all issues on your application. The first morning of camp, bring any medications, instructions, and concerns to Lisa Posthumus. He will inform your pirate’s captain of the procedure or other considerations in a morning meeting with the captains.
Please, for the safety of your children DO NOT send any undisclosed medication with your child. Lisa is reachable at 650-725-3001 and more than happy to meet with you before camp sets sail to discuss any special needs.
My pirate has a touch of scurvy and will miss camp, what do we do?
Please inform us if your pirate will be missing camp at the earliest possible time. Unfortunately, we cannot refund or pro-rate days at camp missed.
