Our staff is, comprised of the best children's chess instructors in North America! The USA Chess camps are uniquely qualified to cater to the needs of the advanced scholastic player as well as the true beginner. USA Chess hit its first milestone in the summer of 2000 producing the largest chess camp ever held in the United States, with more than 250 students enrolled. What was most surprising, however, was the amount of absolute beginners in attendance - more than 50% of the total enrollment was just starting to play chess. This realization led to the national rollout tour of 100 camps in more than 70 cities. The annual tours have been immensely successful with several thousand campers attending this year alone.

USA Chess thrives on providing a structured environment that is extremely conducive to learning chess. We handpick the best children's chess instructors from all over the United States and bring them to each camp. We believe our team is most effective in teaching chess to children of all ages and levels. The exceptional organization and ever-fun curriculum has fueled much interest from scholastic players and coaches from around the country, prompting them to request USA Chess camps in their areas.

At the same summer camp locations, we also offer the immensely popular Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Camps, The Active Learning Computer Animation Programs, and other Computer Enrichment Programs such as Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft. We now offer seven unique programs in all.

At these camps, children are assigned a computer for the week; they spend the week learning to create their own one-of- a- kind video games in our Gamebuilder Camps, Animation Projects in our Animation Camps, also Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft.

VIEW CAMP PHOTO

CAMP LOCATION: We are located on the campus of The Madeira School, overlooking the Potomac River. On Thursday nights, we camp out at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, VA.

Daily transportation is provided by our fleet of purple buses, with stops at Bailey's Crossroads, Yorktown High School, West Falls Church metro, Dulles Town Center, Reston's Plaza America, Wolftrap, Friendship Heights metro, McLean Shopping Center, Forest Glen metro, and Pyle Middle School.

CAMP FACILITIES: Camp takes place outside, with a break for lunch overlooking the river. Indoor classrooms are available as rain/heat spaces. Thursday night campouts take place at a local lakeside campsite; we pitch tents and cook over a fire. Performances take place in a variety of theaters, camps, schools, and other venues, culminating in a final performance festival in our own amphitheater.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: At Traveling Players Ensemble’s camp, small troupes of actors are carefully guided by professional theatre artists to perform in outdoor amphitheaters. Our program reflects the origins of theatre, when troupes of actors roamed the ancient and medieval countryside, relying on the barest props and boldest imagination to convey their art. Each session culminates in a fully mounted and designed performance which tours to several locations, thereby cultivating stronger, more adaptable and capable artists and individuals.

Traveling Players emphasizes a meaningful engagement with nature. Our unique day camp (Monday-Friday) features a campout every Thursday—when performers learn Leave No Trace camping techniques, to pitch tents and cook outdoors. In their final week, teens camp out close to their performance site—giving them the experience of wandering entertainers who carry their dinner, tent and props in their trusty pack. As artists and backpackers, campers learn self-reliance and creative problem solving, and gain an appreciation of challenges and beauty.

Founding Artistic Director Jeanne Harrison has taught for The Folger Shakespeare Library, Catholic University, University of Maryland-Baltimore County, Loyola University (MD), The Chapin School (NYC) and Interlochen Center for the Arts (MI), where she directed the Shakespeare program. Jeanne has worked in camping for 28 years, directed two other camps, is a certified Camp Director (American Camping Association), Wilderness First Responder (SOLO), and an Instructor with the American Red Cross. Jeanne has also served as a judge for the Helen Hayes Awards.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Traveling Players Ensemble offers need-based scholarships for all programs, with awards up to 100% of tuition, and no yearly or lifetime cap on awards. Please visit our scholarships page for more information.

CAMP LOCATION: Old Dominion University is located in the coastal city of Norfolk, Virginia.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Envision Lead Grow is a Norfolk-based non-profit organization designed to introduce entrepreneurship to middle school girls through camps, mentoring, webinars and conferences. Through this repeated exposure and practice, girls develop entrepreneurial, STEM-infused skills that allow them to contribute to and stimulate local economies.

Envision Lead Grow‘s mission is to increase the rate of entrepreneurship and break the cycle of poverty for 1,000 middle school girls in underserved communities in the U.S. by 2020. We are committed to helping them build their future through entrepreneurship by creating a community to support their success.

Angela D. Reddix is the President and CEO of ARDX, a multi-million-dollar healthcare management and IT consulting firm based in Norfolk, Virginia.

In 2016, Angela created the Envision Lead Grow movement, an online platform designed to support and encourage entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey.

Angela values education and is determined to share her knowledge with you.

Anyssa Reddix is a published author, speaker, and mentor to young girls. Sharing Angela’s passion for entrepreneurship, she jumped into Envision Lead Grow with both feet.

Anyssa is the Program Manager for Envision Lead Grow. She is in charge of organizing the stops along the 7-City Bus Tour. She has put together the team of counselors that will travel from city to city, she will be overseeing how they carry out the curriculum, “The 8 Seeds to Success in Business,” as well as organizing the logistics to get the bus on the road.

In 2016, the idea of the 7-City Bus Tour was just that. An idea. In 2017, thanks to the support, the time and the generosity of so many people, the first ever Envision Lead Grow cross-country tour was an overwhelming success. The national Envision Lead Grow 7-City Bus Tour kicked off the Envision Lead Grow entrepreneur program in the summer of 2017, making stops in 7 different cities (Atlanta, GA; Baltimore, MD; Memphis, TN; Norfolk, VA; Philadelphia, PA; Richmond, VA; and Greensboro, NC) across the United States. The ELG team shared its fast-paced, fun-filled curriculum, “The 8 Seeds to Success in Business”, written by Dr. Angela Reddix Founder and CEO herself, during a week-long summer camp in each city.

In 2018, ELG plans to expand its reach by serving two more regions- Bowling Green, KY; and Charleston, WV. Rather than touring each city like we did in 2017, in the summer of 2018, a total of 250 girls will travel from all branches to our home city of Norfolk to begin or expand their "8 Seeds to Success in Business" growth, together.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: ELG's Entrepreneurial Immersion Summer Camp is free of charge to our Girl Bosses and their family.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Envision Lead Grow is a Norfolk-based non-profit organization designed to introduce entrepreneurship to middle school girls through camps, mentoring, webinars and conferences. Through this repeated exposure and practice, girls develop entrepreneurial, STEM-infused skills that allow them to contribute to and stimulate local economies.

The Envision Lead Grow Entrepreneurial Program consists of 4 parts:
Summer Immersion
9-Month Mentoring Support
All City, All Girls Webinars
The Entrepreneur Institute

Summer Immersion
The Envision Lead Grow program begins HERE, at one of our entrepreneurial immersion summer camps. Middle school girls from around your community will come together at a sleepaway camp to learn the building blocks of becoming an entrepreneur. Many of the girls start the session as strangers and will leave as great friends. Over the course of the summer program, participants will take part in exercises to help them think bigger, to apply entrepreneurial, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) infused skills to everyday life and to make better decisions. At the end of the summer immersion camp, these young women will leave with a solid business idea, a Passion Pitch they can use to sell their idea to others and confidence to take their company - and community - to the next level.

9-Month Mentoring Support
The Summer Immersion summer camp experience is just the beginning of the process for these budding Girl Bosses. We partner with adult mentors in each city where Envision Lead Grow sets up. After the summer camp is finished, female volunteers within the community step in to guide, to support and to be a sounding board for these young entrepreneurs. Over the course of the school year, the mentors check in with their young mentees to keep them on track.

All City, All Girls Webinars
It can be lonely to be in business for yourself, so Envision Lead Grow designed a way to ensure these young entrepreneurs never feel isolated. Aside from the check-ins with their mentors, ELG girls and mentors have the chance to meet each other through virtual meetings. Through these monthly video calls, the girls get to learn from ELG Founder Angela Reddix, as well as, each other. We believe that it is important to have a network of support through not only their ELG branch city mentor, but other ELG peers and mentors from all branches, too.

The Entrepreneur Institute
Envision Lead Grow will reward business owners who are committed to making their companies thrive. The Entrepreneur Institute is a multi-day field trip that will bring together the leaders of Fortune 500 companies, mentors and business educators. It’s an all-expenses paid trip for the girls who participate in the mentoring sessions, the All-City Webinars and the ELG business challenges. ELG Girl Bosses who are engaged in the program can earn a spot in The Entrepreneur Institute.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Girls will learn the "8 Seeds to Success in Business" curriculum, written and developed by Dr. Angela D. Reddix, Founder, President and CEO of ARDX, a mult-million dollar management and technology consulting company based in Norfolk, Virginia. This summer, the "8 Seeds" curriculum has been enhanced to include STEM-infused exercises and activities. In addition to entrepreneurial, STEM-infused practices, girls will have opportunity for choice time activities, such as yoga, drama (daily improvisation games), singing, dancing, creative writing, visual art, sports (volleyball, soccer, basketball, or tennis), swimming, blogging, cooking, and/or hiking. The girls will have the opportunity to explore Hampton Roads and experience some form of culture that is unique or unfamiliar to them. By the end of the week of camp, each girl will have a venture with a business plan ready to begin making sales, increased level of self-efficacy, greater self-control, conscientiousness, evaluation of short-term and long-term goals, intuition for decision making, and the ability to pitch her business venture successfully.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
The ELG Class of 2018 will begin with Summer Immersion. This year, Summer Immersion is a one-week long, all-expenses paid, sleepaway camp hosted at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.

Girl Bosses, new and returning, will have the option to attend Summer Immersion Sunday, July 8th – Saturday, July 14th OR Sunday, July 15th – Saturday, July 21st.
