Chess Summer Camps are the perfect way to introduce the game of chess to new students, deepen understanding of the game for established players, or offer intensive instruction for aspiring chess masters.

Instruction offers a solid basic foundation, emphasizing the fundamental skills needed to begin a lifetime of learning in chess, including:

  • Proper piece and board set-up
  • Algebraic Notation (Chess Language)
  • Basic Principles of Play 

Grandmasters then provide expert instruction building on these skills and covering more advanced ideas, including:
