Theme of the Camp - Celebrate our African American Players
In the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day come celebrate the history of African American players such as Grandmaster Maurice Ashley and legend Emory Tate. In addition to seeing some amazing moves we will also view clips from Brooklyn Castle discussing how chess enriched the lives of several students in New York City. This of course with all the puzzles and playing you've come to love from our camps. We may even have a special guest appearance!
