Chess Camp (ages 8 – 12)
Chess is lots of fun and it sharpens a wide variety of important thinking skills. Chess also builds confidence and perseverance. In this one-week, half-day chess camp, we’ll emphasize chess fundamentals and good sportsmanship. All levels are welcome! In addition to lots of play, we’ll learn endgame techniques and opening principles and hone our tactical skills by solving chess puzzles. We’ll also play fun and challenging variations like Bughouse and Plunder Chess. Campers receive a premium ChessKid.com account for practice and play at home. As five-time World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anandsaid, “Above all, chess must be fun.”
