More Summer Camps: Fencing . . .

In addition to the list of camps specializing in such activities as gymnastics, tennis and performing arts ( Almanac, April 1, 1997) being held this summer for children, the Fencing Team announces its Junior Fencing Camp. Two one-week overnight sessions will be offered from July 27 to August 9 for $495/week, which includes meals and housing. Week 1 is the traditional camp with a teaching program focusing on basics, techniques, lessons, drills, strategic and tactical concepts. Week 2 emphasizes competition with plenty of bouting, personal analysis by coaches, videos, lessons, and more advanced strategic and tactical training. Campers may participate in either or both weeks of camp. Campers ages 14-17 with at least one year of competition experience are preferred. For more information, contact Dave Micahnik at 898-6116.
