Still Room for Young Players at AGA Summer Go Camp

Monday June 11, 2012

There’s still time to register for this year’s AGA Summer Go Camp. Camp directors Nano Rivera and Amanda Miller welcome all campers from the ages of 8 to 18 to join them for a week of go-playing and fun. This year’s professional teacher is Mingjiu Jiang 7P, who will be giving group lessons on a daily basis throughout the week. The camp also offers many other go-related activities, such as camp tournaments, and this year’s unique location will afford the camp with access to hiking trails and open outdoor areas for playing games, so everyone will be getting lots of fresh air! Currently, the camp has registered campers between the ages of 6 and 18 and within a strength range of 22-kyu to 1-dan. Need-based scholarships are still available, and parents are even welcome to attend with their children, if they’re not comfortable sending them alone. The camp will take place the week before the U.S. Go Congress from July 28 to August 4 and will be held at the same location at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, North Carolina. For more information, you can visit the camp website or e-mail the camp directors at agagocampeast@gmail.com. - Story and photo by Amanda Miller, Go Camp Director.
