International Chess Master Larry Evans and staff teach in over forty schools throughout San Diego. Children come from all over the world to study at their summer camp in Lake Arrowhead. Over the past twenty-five years, their program has produced many champions. The 2nd highest ranked chess player in the world today participated in their program during his formative years. The former U.S. 5th Grade Champion has been their student from his beginning as well. The Evans Method of instruction utilizes fun tools (like a giant chess set) and positive reinforcement to reward enthusiasm and participation. Every child gets prizes and a trophy!
