Give Your Children The Gift Of Chess Camp This Christmas, Or Hanukkah ...
Dear parents, Let’s be honest giving your kid an Iphone, Ipad, Xbox, or Playstation is so 2016 it’s almost 2015. If you truly want to make a life-changing gift this holiday season send them to our chess camp during the 2018 Winter holiday break from December 24th-28th. Never mind that most of your school districts are closed and if you don’t, they will drive you insane for that one single week (wink wink).
