Chess Camp - Beginner/Intermediate (Rising 1st-8th Graders)
July 20-24 9:00-12:00
Come learn the "Game of Kings" in a fun and nurturing environment. This camp strikes an appropriate balance between children simply enjoying the game of chess and learning basic tactics and strategies through problem solving and critical thinking exercises. Lessons utilize puzzles and a GIANT Chess Set to help students learn how to focus and make better decisions. The week culminates with a camp tournament.
