Fencing one of available classes

Las Positas College (LPC) Community Education will offer enrichment and career classes, including self-paced online courses, for adults and summer camps and expression classes for children this summer beginning mid-June.

"We are proud to partner with faculty and staff from the college to offer a great range of summer camps for kids as young as five and adults, including seniors," said Program Coordinator Frances DeNisco. "We are looking forward to bringing back favorite camps and offering new courses, and we invite all members of the community to spend their summer learning with Las Positas College Community Education."

Teens and children will have the option of taking writing and music focused courses and camps designed to allow students to expand their horizons. They are available for children as young as five. This year's programs for teenagers have been designed to encourage career exploration, which will allow students to examine everything from emergency medical technician (EMT) to digital arts and biotechnology or sports medicine to coding and ethical hacking.

The Beginning Fencing Camp for Kids with Sophie Rheinheimer is back and offered as two camps, one for children ages five and six and a second for children ages eight to 12. Rheinheimer, who represented Team USA at the Veterans World Championships in 1999 and 2000, is the current LPC fencing instructor, and fencing coach. She integrates movement as a medium to the physical, mental, emotional and social dimensions of health and fitness and emphasizes strength in her instruction. Previous students have competed at all levels of fencing, including at the national level.
