All Pope fencers and their families are invited. As well as food and swimming, we will be honouring our graduating seniors and awarding Varsity Letters to the fencers who earned them. There will also be a short parent meeting to plan for next season.
BBQ pork and chicken sandwiches as well as corn on the cob and soft drinks will be provided. There will also be the famous chocolate fountain. We need each fencer to bring one food item to the party, either a salad, potato chips or items to dip in the chocolate fountain.
We’re using SignUp.com to organize who is bringing which food item. Here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:

Summer camp will be July 9 – 12 in the Pope Cafeteria. It is 9 AM through 3 PM on Monday through Thursday.
This is just a few weeks before school starts and is a great opportunity to prepare for the coming season.
Camp is open to all Pope fencers, and anyone who will be in 6th to 12th grade at any school in the coming school year (home schooled students in the same age group are also welcome).
The camp caters to experienced fencers as well as beginners. The coaches would like all Pope fencers to attend if they are in town. If you know anyone who might be interested in trying fencing (especially if they go to Pope or will go to Pope in the future), please encourage them to sign up.
If you have been thinking about trying a private fencing club, now is the time.

Winter Break: For $60 per fencer, you can attend all sessions from 22 December through 6 January. If you buy the Winter Break package before 20 November, you can get the Thanksgiving Break package at half price.
