Yes! Besides Go lessons and other Go-related activities, we'll also be balancing out camp with some traditional summer camp activities. This year’s location will afford us access to hiking trails and open outdoor areas for playing games, so we’ll be getting lots of fresh air! We may even take an afternoon off from Go lessons during the week for some sort of fun group activity. We’ll have more information regarding this last possibility soon, so keep checking back!
What is the AGA Go Camp?
The AGA Go Camp is a week-long summer camp that has aimed to provide kids from 8-18 with the opportunity to study and play Go in a traditional summer camp setting every year since 1998. The camp includes daily Go lessons and other Go-related activities, as well as more traditional summer camp activities to make for a balanced and fun summer camp experience.

What do we do at Go Camp?
At Go Camp, we spend most of the week playing Go, of course! We also have a lot of fun and make lots of new friends!
At the beginning of the week, campers are broken into several different classes, depending on their strength. Each class receives an individual teacher, who they meet with for Go lessons every morning and part of every afternoon. In the late afternoon, we take a break from Go to get some fresh air and exercise. Then, after dinner, we have more Go-related activities, including tournaments and fun variations on Go.

The location is well-suited to accommodate large groups of people and provides a perfect setting for a summer camp. It offers hiking trails, playgrounds, and athletic fields, as well as plenty of open spaces which will allow for traditional summer camp and other outdoor activities.
