Do we do anything at camp other than Go?
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 plenty of 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 a fun group activity. During last year's camp, we enjoyed hiking, archery, boating, swimming and rock climbing. We’ll have more information regarding camp activities for this year soon, so keep checking back!

AGA East US Go Camp
July 18 through July 25, 2015
YMCA Camp Kern in Oregonia, Ohio
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 the game.
