Canuck Place Easter Seal Camp Chess Event
Chess2inspire volunteers were delighted to participate in the 2014 Canuck Place Easter Seal Camp Chess Event in Squamish, BC. On a sunny day during the Easter break, a group of chess players spent a day at the Easter Seal Camp with kids with terminal illness.
"I found this experience quite eye-opening. Seeing the kids enjoy themselves even with the hardships they face reminded me to be thankful of the good health I'm in currently. It impressed me how fast everyone learned and how eager they were to jump into a new game, I hope the people in the camp enjoyed learning chess as much as I did playing alongside them." - Ryan Lo
