What will Campers learn?

Students new to bridge will learn the basics of bridge bidding and card play. For those with some experience, such as attendance at SiVY events, classes, or last year’s Summer Camp, Camp will start where they left off, with each skill level assigned to a similarly skilled group.

After attending camp students will be able to continue their learning at other SiVY events or by taking classes offered through the Palo Alto Bridge Club.

What are the benefits?

Bridge helps students strengthen their basic math and logic skills while they have fun. It gives them a chance to make new friends while they are learning about the importance of teamwork. The camp will let them learn from each other, as well as from experienced teachers and mentors, without the pressure associated with academic requirements.
