Who: Rockland Fencers Club What’s New: The beginner fencing and STEM program, which is a weeklong day camp. The camp will run July 16-20, 9am-4pm. Children will learn fencing tactics, strategies, and rules, and participate in warm-up games, conditioning, and technical and fencing drills. The curriculum includes daily STEM activities, designed to stimulate the students’ minds in these subjects. All STEM activities are hands-on and taught by a certified teacher. Co-owner Tyler Overk says he decided to incorporate STEM because fencing is not only a physical activity, but one that requires mental strength and quick decision making.
