Yalow Tigers Summer Chess Camp 2016
July 6, 2016 @ 9:00 am - July 26, 2016 @ 2:00 pm
The 2016 Summer Chess Program, running from July 6 to July 26, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., will feature a holistic approach to learning. Tai chi will be the body, music the spirit, and chess the mind.
The camp will be directed by National Master Jerald Times. Times is bringing an all-star assembly for the summer camp, which features Hall of Fame martial artist Abdul Musawwir teaching tai chi and musician and Ph.D. candidate Kasaun Henry instructing music.
There will be T shirts, chess sets, and trophies given to the participants. Our 2016 camp will also include tournaments and field trips within the 21-day schedule. Studies show that chess enhances academic performance and improves standardized test scores. In this intensive course, it is our mission that our young students learn to make not only the right moves in chess but also the right moves in life.
The summer program is the foundation for building the Yalow Tigers chess team.
