Welcome to Chess Adventure!

Chuck Unruh, National Chess Master, teaching the Premier class. Ed Boyle is assisting and also held a morning tournament.Chess Adventure began in the spring of 2006 with a few parents, chess club directors, and chess experts who wished to promote scholastic chess. Our goal was to work together to provide a low cost summer chess camp experience for scholastic chess players. Through the efforts of willling and enthusiastic volunteers, our first year was a tremendous success with 50 campers of all ages and skills. Highligchess simul eventhts included a simul with National Chess Master Chuck Unruh and a team championship Swiss tournament on the last day.

In our second year, we nearly doubled enrollment. A few families traveled from miles away and stayed in hotels so their children could attend camp. Nearly all our our first year's volunteers and teachers returned and many more offered helps. A morning session, lunch and cookout for the Premier players were added. New activities including human chess were included in the events.

Chess Adventure is now incorporated as a not-for-profit organization. Those associated with the organization continue their goal of providing scholastic chess education opportunities through chess camps, scholastic chess clubs, and other educational chess-related activities.
