Go Camps Offers Study & Fun

Monday June 18, 2012

“The AGA Summer Go Camp is excited to announce that both Slate and Shell and Kiseido have made a donation of books to the 2012 camp,” reports Camp Director Amanda Miller. “Throughout the week of July 29, the camp will be holding small tournaments and other fun Go-related activities, such as 13 x13, pair Go, and team tournaments. The books will be given out to the winners of these events, and include titles from  Yuan Zhou’s Master Play series, Yilun Yang’s The Workshop Lectures, and the Elementary Go Series. Because of the generosity of these companies, there should be more than enough books to go around, so every camper will get at least one,” adds Miller. Go Camp is for anyone between the ages of 8 and 18, and there is still time to register. The camp will take place the week before the Go Congress from July 28 to August 4 and will be held at the same location, the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, North Carolina.  Mingjiu Jiang (7P) will be the teacher. Kids who are interested in the camp, but worry they can’t afford it, are encouraged to apply for need-based scholarships, which are still available from the AGF. “We have registered campers between the ages of 6 and 18, and within a strength range of 22-kyu to 1-dan, so the camp should be a lot of fun, regardless of age or rank,” says Miller.
