Hello Parents and Children interested in the Chess Summer Camp 2017 at the U of W!

With a good mix of talented juniors and relative newcomers this should be a great camp!

Please bring a completed registration form (attached) and $120 payable to the Manitoba Chess Association. We request that you pack a peanut-free lunch for your child because some of our students have allergies. We will be providing a pizza lunch on the last day.
