FENCING SUMMER CAMP – REGISTER NOW!!!

Tag: Latest Newsjfcadmin @ 6:28 pm

 

It’s time to start thinking about the Episcopal Summer Fencing Camp being held at Episcopal High School and coached by Coach Toro. There are 2 weeks of camp and you can take just one week, or both weeks. The cost is $250.00 each week and the camp runs from 9:00am-3:00pm each day. Session #1 runs from July 13-17 and Session #2 runs from July 20-24. There will be about 3 hours of fencing each day along with lunch, swimming, and a movie.

For those who already fence, this is good training. For those who have never fenced and would like to try it, they can check it out at minimal cost since the equipment is provided. There will be a tournament on the last day of each session. So, sign up your fencers from 4th to 12th grade and tell your friends who have children to give it a try.

Here is a link to the web page. More information will be posted on the Episcopal page as the summer gets closer.
