After being taught chess at an early age by his father, the founder, during a trip to New York, observed many older students from many different backgrounds playing chess together in Central Park and having fun while playing. This was the inspiration for KidsForChess, which encourages children to engage in an activity that has a specific purpose, rather than wasting time playing mindless video games aimlessly for hours.

Thanks to Mr. Jeffrey Lee, Principal at Chattahoochee Elementary ( ) for donating the chess sets for the camp)
