18th Annual Castle Chess Camp, June 17-22, 2018,

at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. Castle Chess Camp is a nationally renowned program of chess instruction featuring some of the strongest scholastic players and top ranked instructors in the nation. Our regular staff of instructors includes GM's Varuzhan Akobian, Julio Becerra, John Fedorowicz, Irina Krush, Daniel Naroditsky, Magesh Panchanathan, and Gregory Serper, many of whom are expected to be back with us for 2018. The camp is followed by the Castle Chess Grand Prix tournament (G/120, d/10), June 22-24, offering $13,500 in guaranteed prizes!

Castle Chess Camp is instructive, rewarding, and it's a lot of fun, but it's not for everyone. We are a full immersion experience, with chess literally from early morning until after sunset. It requires not only chess skills, but a certain amount of stamina. For that reason no campers under age 10 will be accepted. There is also a minimum USCF rating required. Camp always fills up early, so be sure to register early. For more information please visit our website, www.castlechess.org or email [email protected]
