Summer season brings seasonal opportunities

Schools may be closing for the summer, but the city of Claremont is sponsoring a variety of classes and activities for eager students (and desperate parents).

Among the offerings is Camp Claremont, which kicks off Monday, June 17 and continues on through August 9. Held at Wheeler Park on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., participants will engage in team building exercises, arts and crafts and sports. The curriculum also includes beating the summer heat with some water games. There is a one-time registration cost of $10 in addition to the $15 fee per week/per child. The price includes a camp shirt, breakfast and lunch—provided through the Claremont Unified School District. For more information, call 399-5490.

Back by popular demand is Claremont's Chess Camp, helping those aged 6 to 12 brush up on their gameplay. Chess camp begins on August 12 and runs through Friday, August 16. Registration is $100 and comes with a camp shirt. For more information, call 399-5490.

A women's self defense class for teens and adults will be held at the Hughes Center on Saturday, June 15, from noon to 2 p.m. Students will be taught Judo skills as well as other techniques for self defense. The class is $25 per person.

A variety of other family friendly activities will take place throughout the summer, including Monday Concerts in the Park, Friday Nights Live and Family Movie Nights.
