Summer Go Camp & AGF Scholarships
Information on the Summer Go Camp:
The AGA Go Camp is moving west this year, and will be held at Schoepe Scout Camp at Lost Valley, just outside of San Diego, from July 30th to August 5th. Myungwan Kim 9P will return as the instructor, and Fernando Rivera, Wenguang Wang, and Yanping Zhao will be camp directors. The location, in the mountains above Anza-Borrego State Park, and surrounded by 1,500 acres of national forest, will give kids a taste of the outdoors. The camp features many activities, including high-wire walking, hiking trails, horse-back riding, two swimming pools, boating, and shooting ranges. “During our drive around the camp, I saw herds of deer wandering about. Birds, and other critters are frequent visitors of the camp also,” reports Congress Director Ted Terpstra. “There are native American artifacts on site including rocks where they ground the grain into flour. This is the flagship camp of the Boy Scouts in southern California. I was impressed with the care that has gone into the maintenance of the facilities. It certainly gives an entirely different feeling compared to the packed freeways of southern California.” Camp will be the week before the US Go Congress, and a two hour drive from the site. Youth of all ranks can come and learn from a pro, improve their skills, and then come to compete in the US Open the following week. Airport pick up is available in San Diego for unaccompanied minors. The AGF is again offering a range of scholarships. Youth who played in either the Redmond Cup or the NAKC are eligible for $400 scholarships, and the winning teams in the School Teams Tournament will also receive full scholarships to camp. - Paul Barchilon EJ Youth Editor.
