Description

WE ARE BACK AFTER SUCCESSFUL CAMPS, YEAR AFTER YEAR !!!!

About the Camp:

FREE for all K-12 Girls!

Its an all-day, all-girls camp! Empowering the young minds of girls and giving them an opportunity to explore their interest in chess.Camp also providers opportunities to make friends/expanding the female population in chess.

Goal:

Encourage girls to play chess. Girls need as much motivation and support as boys are getting to play and excel in chess. Girls are as good as boys and are doing great in various areas. Girls are equal and deserve equal opportunities and privileges. This camp is an attempt to address this imbalance and offer our girls a platform to excel.

Teach basic rules of the game, how to play, strategies and tactics; but most importantly spread the love of chess, instill passion for competitive games in them and mold the children into the path for future chess masters.
