Welcome back to the W&W that started it all – Heights Knights. 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.

Design a family crest using heraldic symbolism…and paint it on your battle shield!

Jousting competitions, sword play, and other medieval revelry
