20 Years of California Chess Camp Fun

May 23, 2017

250x253x49.jpg.pagespeed.ic.jsiRDGSpSEThis year marks my 20th anniversary of teaching an annual summer chess camp to many of California’s brightest young chess players. Several of the children who trained with us over the years have gone on to win national titles and some even return as young adults to help teach the next generation of superstars. In fact, a couple of my original students are now showing up with their own children which goes to show the beauty of the lasting friendships formed at summer chess camp.
In recognition of this momentous anniversary, I am offering a special retro chess camp experience for a special retro price. Sign up for my South Bay Chess Camp and you’ll register for the 1997 price! Don’t miss out on the best deal in youth chess.
