European Chess Champion Val Martin will offer kids chess camps and chess instruction through her "Chess Champions Academy" this summer. Studies have shown the game of chess to build essential skills for kids such as problem solving, creative thinking, increased ability to focus and enhanced self-esteem.
Instructed by two-time European Chess Champion, Val Martin, students will participate in fun chess curriculum, chess puzzles, non-elimination tournaments and extensive play time.
Classes will be offered at Stonebridge United Methodist Church, 1800 S. Stonebridge Dr. in McKinney. Contact Ms. Martin at email@example.com for more information and to register or visit www.mysumc.org/children.
