Fencing camp experience in Istanbul to support turkish young fencers after the earthquake.
Future Champions Camp is a brand that organizes fencing experiences around the world, for young fencers, in order to help them to develop their fencing skills and to put them in condition to express their self at the best. We know that not in every part of the world there is the same economical potential, but we didn’t want this to become a limit, a wall, for every young man or woman to be involved and to live experiences that can help them to change their lives.
So, we decided to organize a different experience – a camp where our goal would be to make our experience acceptable for everyone. We already had our first experience in Mexico City, where we organized our first Pink Mask Project fencing camp, with the goal to support young fencers to improve their fencing skills and to talk about INCLUSION, using sport.
In this experience, young fencers had the chance to partecipate with a symbolic fee, and frequented high level fencing classes with Olympic and World Champions, and faced complicated topics of inclusion as the gender gap, using fencing. Every training, fencers have to “win” one of the different aspects of the gender gap, completing some fencing exercises trough the new skills they have learned during the camp.
In this case, our goal is to give the chance to young turkish fencers to live an experience of fun, improving and challenging, in a not simple moment for their country. Therefore we need the support of the whole fencing community to organize, in this difficult moment, the project with a camp in Istanbul from 31st March to 2nd April.
Thank you for every contribution!
