Vendors Donate for Go Camp

Wednesday June 24, 2015

Go Camp 2014 (116)“The AGA Go Camp would like to extend a hearty thanks to Kiseido, Slate & Shell, and Yellow Mountain Imports for their generous donations to the 2015 camp,” says camp director Amanda Miller, “in addition to go lessons and outdoor activities, we also run small tournaments and other go-related activities every night. These activities include 13×13, pair go, and team tournaments, and we plan to use these items as prizes in those events. We’ve received some especially generous donations this year, and we have more than enough to go around, so every camper should receive at least one prize!” Donations include books, travel go sets, and other go-related merchandise.

For anyone between the ages of 8 and 18 who wants to join in the fun, there’s still time to register. This year’s camp will take place from July 18th to July 25th at YMCA Camp Kern in Oregonia, Ohio. Directors Amanda Miller and Nano Rivera are excited to have Myungwan Kim 9P as this summer’s professional teacher, and they invite those interested in the camp to apply for need-based scholarships, which are still available. Anyone who participated in the NAKC or the Redmond Cup is eligible for a $400 scholarship. “The camp currently has 15 registered campers from the ages of 8 to 18 and with strengths ranging from 30-kyu to 1-kyu.  Camp should be a lot of fun, regardless of age or rank,” adds Miller. For more information, visit the camp website or email Amanda Miller at agagocampeast@gmail.com. -Paul Barchilon, E-J Youth Editor.  Photo by Amanda Miller: Campers showing off their prizes at last year’s camp.
