summer fencing camp

I realise that this is a recruiting forum, but I thought that the members are very familiar with summer fencing camps and can advice a parent of a beginner fencer.
My boy is 12 years old and started fencing only 7 months ago and he loves it. He went to a few tournaments ( only one sanctioned ). I would love sending him to a sleep away camp (like Princeton or MFC) but I wonder if he will be too much of a beginner. I wish for him to learn more, have some fun, but I am afraid that he will be turned away from the sport if he finds himself at the bottom. Any experience with beginners and sleep away fencing camps? Should I send him or should I wait a year ?
