Chess (ages 8 -12)
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 learn fun and challenging variations like Anti-Chess, Bughouse and Plunder Chess. As the five-time World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand said, “Above all, chess must be fun.”
All campers receive a ChessKid account and a puzzle workbook for practice and play at home.
