Camp Site Update:
Due to circumstances both unexpected and beyond our control, the Bethany Presbyterian site is not available for our August 18-22 camp. That camp will be held at Evergreen Presbyterian Church in Beaverton (Location details and a map are here.)  We regret any inconvenience this causes, and wish there was a way to avoid it.  Our camps starting on July 28th and August 4th will still be at Bethany Presbyterian.

It's all about the kids...

Our motto is more than a tagline, and more than a mission statement. 

It's our way of life.  

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 73 of them.)  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.
