Active Learning has been conducting Chess and Gamebuilder
camps across the country since 1997. Our USA Chess

Professional Chess coaches make learning the game fun for beginners
and a great learning experience for others who wish to improve

play. Ages 5-16.

of child's design and they can take their games home with them at
the end of the camp. Ages 8-16.
