It's our way of
Chess Odyssey was founded in 2002 to help kids grow as
chess players, and— more importantly—as people. That mission guides all our programs—chess clubs, chess camps,
tournaments, and private instruction. It runs through our curriculum and program design, and is the foundation for
our twin measures of success: learning and laughter.
Some of our kids are state champions. (We've had
the honor of training 68 of them over the past 15 years.) Others are just learning how knights
move. Most are somewhere in between. We treasure each and every one of them. Happy, excited
kids who are growing as people and as chess players are what we are all about.
