15th Annual Castle
Chess Camp, June 14-19, 2015, 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 staff of instructors for the 2015 camp will include GM
Varuzhan Akobian, GM Julio Becerra, GM John Fedorowicz, GM Irina Krush, GM

Castle 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 resident campers must be age 10, and commuter campers age 9. 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 at: www.castlechess.org or email email@example.com.
