Get Ready! The Midwest Chess Camp will be here soon!

Greater Peoria Chess Federation and Foundation

are the driving forces behind Peoria Chess. The Federation provides tournaments and activities and the Foundation supplies the fiscal muscle to promote chess. Our youth chess programs involve over 100 youth of various ages and include the state champion Hickory Grove First & second grade teams, several Dunlap Middle School championships and Dunlap High School All Grade high school state champions.

Peoria Academy

has sponsored the annual Midwest Chess Camp for 15 years. Peoria Academy is a private school for children K-8 that promotes academic excellence where intellectual stimulation is high and where individual attention is given in a warm, friendly, and nurturing environment.
