Fencing was once commonly learned at an early age, which is why octogenarians settle disputes with games of Rock, Paper, Épée. Celebrate civilized swordplay with this Groupon.

The camps introduce kids to three styles of fencing in a fun, welcoming environment with mini tournaments and prizes during the week. There are multiple camp dates from mid-July to mid-August. Kids aged 5–8 meet from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and ages 9 and older meet from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Red Rock Fencing Center

Director of Red Rock Fencing Center Frank Van Dyke is a longtime expert when it comes to the sport, with more than 30 years as a fencer, coach, and referee. He trained under one Olympian and three Olympic coaches before becoming a certified member of the U.S. Fencing Coaches Association and ascending to the board of the United Fencing Federation. The energetic Van Dyke does not rest on his laurels, competing to maintain world-class A-rated abilities with an épée, which crowns his talent with foil and sabre. In both instruction and competition, he draws techniques from German, Russian, Chinese and American Olympic schools, and specializes in strip and team tactics.

The fencing center embodies both Van Dyke's zeal for excellence and dedication to his community. Olympic and World Cup instructors teach skills in all three weapons to competitive and amateur students, who parry across custom flooring designed to absorb the shocks to joints and muscles caused by forceful lunges and sudden NASA landings. Every Saturday, the team hosts a public tournament for anyone who contributes to its accompanying potluck, and heads beyond the center to work with boy scouts and schoolchildren.
