Weapons & Warfare: Heights Knights

We cycle back to the W&W that started it all - Heights Knights - after several successful years with Strength of the Samurai and Braves on the Warpath. Explore the exciting world of medieval knights in this multi-faceted camp. With a wide range of activities from art and physical competitions to model building and medieval manners, your young squires will discover their nobility. Each day will include study and strength -- the necessary steps to knighthood. Boys will also learn about medieval warfare and customs and have the chance to participate in battle games. This week-long quest of chivalry and valor will conclude with a knighting ceremony. Arts: Design a family crest or shield using heraldic symbolism from the middle ages Crafts: Construct a medieval castle model Games: Jousting competitions and other medieval revelry
