Chess (ages 8 -12)
Do you play chess? In this two-week Camp, we emphasize chess fundamentals and good sportsmanship. In addition to lots of play, we’ll practice basic endgames, hone our visual skills by solving puzzles and learn fun games like the Knight’s tour and anti-chess. Beginners are welcome; they should know that it only takes a few days before their first game of chess and that there are some fun games along the way.
“Above all, chess must be fun.” – Five-time World Champion “Vishy” Anand.
