We are excited to announce a four-day summer chess camp at Pleasant Valley Church of Christ (10900 Rodney Parham, LR, 72212). We have partnered with the Arkansas State Chess Association, Mel Robinson of King’s Chess, and Tony Davis–9x Arkansas State Chess Champion to host this incredible week. Chess camp is the perfect way to introduce the game of chess to new students, deepen understanding of the game for established players, or offer intensive instruction for aspiring chessmasters. Grandmaster instructors will provide lessons, puzzles, and play to help guide students through each session.

Camp is July 23-26 from 8:00am-4pm. The cost is $150 per camper and includes a workbook, shirt, two snack breaks per day, and a one year membership to Chess Express. On Thursday, July 26, we will provide tournament play with a pizza party! Please note, all campers should bring their own lunches Monday-Wednesday.

To see what we are learning each day:

If you would like to volunteer on Thursday, July 26, for the tournament, please email Emily Wilson at emily@pvcc.org.
